Ph.D Hoang Thanh Van

About

Dr. Van graduated at the University of Heidelberg in cell biology, molecular biology and biochemistry in 2011. She successfully completed her PhD on stem cells in patients with leukemia in 2016 and continued her research on stem cells during her postdoc fellowship at the Medical Department of University of Heidelberg and Georg-Speyer-Haus, Institute for Tumor Biology and Experimental Therapy in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Her research has been published in well-known journals such as Leukemia, Biomaterials, International Journal of Cancer, Haematologica…  

Since September 2018, she is working at the Cellular Manufacturing Department, Vinmec Institute of Stem Cell and Gene Technology, in which she and her colleagues work on stem cells and develop stem cell related products for medical applications. She also would like to do research and apply novel cell therapy for the treatment of incurable diseases in Vietnam.
