Brief description Over 10,000 persons per year in Australia are diagnosed with a blood cancer, accounting for 10% of cancer deaths. Stem cell transplantation remains curative therapy for these diseases but is limited by a process known as graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), responsible for mortality in up to 50% of patients. This project will focus on immune responses within the colon as the critical event initiating lethal GVHD, defining new treatments that will be translated to improve transplant outcomes.
