Field of scientific activity:
Immunology and transplantology, cell therapy, modern methods of immunological system diagnosis among patients after kidney transplantation, search for innovative immunosuppressive drugs.

Main achievements:
Implementation into treatment a cell therapy based on T regulatory cells (CD4+CD25+) and for the first time in the world with success, application of ex vivo expanded T regulatory cells in a human therapy. Effects of the flu vaccine on immunological system of the elderly people have been described and there have been proposed a procedural algorithm during mass vaccination.

Scientific and service offer:
Cell products: cell vaccine Tregs – used in immunosuppressive therapy among patients that suffer from graft versus host reaction and Tregs vaccination in diabetes type I. There is possibility to prepare stem cells of epidermis for curing chronic ulcerations and wounds.

International Projects:
Tolerance induction “In pancreatic islet transplantation as a cure of diabetes type 1” – common project with the University of Chicago, US; Action to Focus and Accelerate Cell-based Tolerance-inducing Therapies (A FACTT) – COST action.

Commercialization and technology transfer:
The vaccine for the treatment of type 1 diabetes for children – Patent No. 399,447 Polish Patent Office.
