Research Laboratory –
Pediatric Leukemias, Solid and Brain Tumors
Working with specialists from the Hemato-Oncology Department, we combine clinical and basic research to find new therapies for childhood cancers that are aggressive and difficult to treat. Ongoing studies include investigations into genetic markers of pediatric brain cancer, stem cell research, hematological malignancies, and drugs for treating brain cancer.
CAR-T Cell Therapy
Sheba Medical Center is one of a select few medical centers worldwide to offer CAR-T therapy, a revolutionary treatment for leukemia. CAR-T therapy involves injecting genetically engineered T-cells into the patient, which act as killer cells that target and destroy tumor cells. Our campus has all of the facilities necessary to implement this progressive therapy.
