Share the Science

Register for this webinar to hear Dr. Moshe Israeli, director of the tissue typing laboratory at Rabin Medical Center in Israel, discuss the fascinating clinical world of immunogenetics. During this hour-long event, Dr. Israeli will explain the challenges of finding a suitable matched donor and the new promise of using cord blood for transplant. From the point of view of the clinical team, he will address the complexity of worldwide global searches for suitable donors and will investigate whether the “global village” is helpful for patients.

Attendees will:

  • Comprehend the basics of immunogenetics and the challenges of tissue typing
  • Understand the immunological challenge of stem cell transplant
  • Learn about the process of donor search and cord-blood search
  • Learn how today’s “global village” sets new challenges for the transplant community
