These units are provided by the Department with basic economical and operational support but are otherwise operated by external grants for operating costs, staff, ph.d.students, post.docs, and other scientists active in the unit.
Clinically, the department is a frontrunner in outpatient handling of a variety of complex medical treatments including outpatient administration of chemotherapy for acute leukemia patients, out patient handling of patients undergoing induction and consolidation chemotherapy for leukemias and outpatient handling of patients undergoing high dose chemotherapy with autologous stem cell support for multiple myeloma and malignant lymphoma.

The unit is responsible for more than 35 actively recruiting clinical trials within most haematological disease groups including trials for patients with acute and chronic graft versus host disease. The department is involved in a large research database platform entitled Persimmune for immunosuppressed patients at the hospital including patients with haematological diagnoses.
