The induction of immunological tolerance is a major task for the success of organ and stem cell transplantation. Selection of the best donor and adequate immune suppression of both rejection and graft-versus-host reaction are fundamental to the success of transplantation. However, graft-versus-leukaemia/tumour reactions are crucial for the success of the treatment of leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma with allogeneic stem cell transplantation. Antigenic targets and effector cells play a major role in tolerance and graft-versus-leukaemia/tumour reactions.
Keen to foster scientific research in this area, the EBMT Cellular Therapy and Immunobiology Working Party is pleased to offer this prestigious (€ 5,000) award for outstanding contributions in the field of hematopoietic transplantation immunology, immunogenetics, cellular therapy, tolerance and graft-vs-leukaemia/tumour effects. The selection will be undertaken by a distinguished international jury under the supervision of Prof. Jon J. van Rood.
The award will be presented on an annual basis in the Cellular Therapy and Immunobiology Working Party Sessions at the EBMT Annual Congress.
To qualify for the award your paper should be published or accepted for publication during the year 2015 and candidates should be not older than 40 years. Applications for the award should include the paper and the CV of the applicant, which should be submitted by email to: CTIWPebmt@lumc.nl by:
January 22st 2016
This award is generously supported by Neovii Biotech GmbH with an unrestricted educational grant of € 5,000.
