Prof Edward K Geissler
Ed Geissler is a basic scientist in Transplantation at the University Hospital Regensburg working in three primary fields of interest: immunology, solid organ transplantation and immunosuppressive therapies. His focus is on the understanding and prevention of immunologic rejection of transplanted organs and on immunosuppressive therapies that are used to prevent transplant rejection, especially the side effects of these drugs. He is particularly interested in post-transplant development of cancer, and has made a strong translational research effort through molecular targeting to reduce the threat of posttransplant malignancy. In another effort to reduce the burden immunosuppressive drugs, he is leading an initiative to introduce cellular therapy in transplant recipients.
