Immunology Focus area: Transplant immunology
Descriptive Title of Research: Role of macrophages in Regenerative Medicine and Cancer Immunotherapy
Research Description: Peiman Hematti, MD is Professor of Medicine in section of Hematology/Oncology, UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, with joint appointments in departments of pediatrics, surgery and biomedical engineering. He is director of Clinical Hematopoietic Cell Processing Laboratory, and medical director of Hematopoietic Cell Collection facility at University of Wisconsin_Madison, overseeing bone marrow and stem cell collections, and clinical processing procedures for hematopoietic cell transplantation or other cellular therapy applications at UW-Madison Hospital and Clinics. In addition to participating in clinical care of bone marrow stem cell transplant patients Dr. Hematti is a collaborator on many novel cellular therapy clinical trials. His clinical research interest is in the prevention and treatment of graft versus host disease and other post-transplant immunological complications, novel cellular therapies for cancer treatment, and use of bone marrow stem cells in regenerative medicine. Dr. Hematti’s laboratory research focuses on immunobiology of stem cell transplantation with a special focus on investigating the immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory properties of a unique type of macrophages discovered in his lab. He is collaborating with many investigators on the UW-campus studying the potential of cellular therapy in many different pre-clinical models.
