Dr. Robert Krance's research interests include: 1) the development of transplantation using alternative donors, 2) transplantation using less than fully HLA matched related donors, and 3) the impact of viral infection post-transplantation.
Current initiatives focus on the development of transplantation using alternative donors and less than fully HLA matched related donors. Investigations are under way into the use of antibodies directed against hematopoietic cells and methods of stem cell purification. In collaboration with other investigators in the Center for Cell and Gene Therapy (CAGT), new cell-based approaches are being conducted hopefully to diminish the impact of viral infection post transplantation.
