The human touch

At the heart of our work is the responsibility we accept for people suffering from leukemia in its various forms. Modern leukemia diagnosis demands a large and closely connected team of experienced physicians, biologists, bioinformatics specialists and medical technicians. Consistent sharing of test results between the various laboratory departments and the steady expansion of staff knowledge guarantee rapid and reliable diagnostics in each individual case. The team of excellently qualified staff members is therefore the nerve center at MLL.
