Moreover, MLL frequently hosts international research cooperation directly: For instance through exchange programs, our test procedures and data repositories, but also by allowing guest researchers to shadow the work of our facility and by sitting on national and international work groups.

We also support research institutions around the world to produce new insight in the field of leukemia diagnostics and emergence, as well as in the rollout of new procedures and applications for routine diagnostics in the facilities themselves.


Our research findings are published in international, peer-reviewed journals and feature in conference talks and lectures, as well as in poster presentations and at scientific events.
