Watch this webinar to hear Dr. Moshe Israeli, PhD, who serves as the director of the tissue typing laboratory at Beilinson Hospital, Rabin Medical Center in Israel. In his clinical duty Dr. Israeli is responsible for all immuno-genetic diagnostic testing of all organ and stem cell transplants carried out by the Clalit Health Services organization in Israel. In addition, he serves as the quality manager of the Bedomayich-Chayi public cord blood bank in Jerusalem.
The webinar will introduce the audience to the fascinating clinical world of immuno-genetics. Why is it so important to find a fully matched donor for a patient who need a stem cell transplant? Why is it so difficult to find such a donor? We will learn about the challenges of finding a suitable matched donor and about the new promise of using cord blood for transplantation.
From the point of view of the clinical team, we will experience the complexity of worldwide global searches for suitable donors and we we will investigate whether the ‘global village’ is helpful or not for the patients.
