Prof. Dr. med. Rupert Handgretinger is the Medical Director of Haematology / Oncology at the University Hospital of Tübingen. In 2011, he received the State Research Prize Baden-Württemberg for applied research. His research interests are immunotherapies for the treatment of malignant diseases in childhood.
In a joint research project, we are developing a blood test for the detection of neuroblastomas and the detection of GD2 on the surface of tumour cells. These serve as a target structure for novel immunotherapies with neuroblastoma.
