The special features of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) namely their extensive proliferative capacity, immunosuppressive capacities and hypoimmunogenicity make them attractive candidates for clinical applications. Currently, I am a Associação Portuguesa contra a Leucemia (APCL)’s fellow within the “Mesenchymal Stem Cells Project”. This project is a collaboration between Instituto Superior Técnico, Instituto Português de Oncologia (IPO) de Lisboa Francisco Gentil, Lisboa and Centro de Histocompatibilidade do Sul (CHS), Lusotransplante which aims at the clinical ex-vivo expansion of Mesenchymal Stem Cells under Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)-conditions for Cellular Therapy (e.g. Graft-versus-Host Disease).
