The Cluster

About us

The Ludwig Boltzmann Cluster Oncology (LBC ONC), which focuses on tumor stem cell research, was established from the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Clinical Experimental Oncology at the Medical University of Vienna and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Leukemia Research and Hematology at the Hanusch Hospital.

Duties and Aims

The tasks of the Cluster Oncology (LBC ONC) are derived from the successful collaboration of preclinical basic research and clinical medicine in the field of tumor stem cell research.

Molecular cell and tissue research results are being implemented in the development of new strategies for cancer and leukemia treatment.

The research objectives are determined by new concepts for clinical applications that are the outcome of results from our in vitro studies.
