Gerhard Hildebrandt’s research focuses on complications after bone marrow transplantation, including acute graft-versus-host disease and lung injury. He is exploring how the microbiome of the gut and throat affects immune responses and clinical outcomes after transplants. Dr. Hildebrandt also is studying the metabolic pathways that potentially could be targeted in blood cancers and after bone marrow transplants. 

Precision Health Impact:

  • Understanding the pathophysiology of graft versus host disease and transplant immunology in murine models of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
