Prof. Shimon Slavin, MD

Prof. Shimon Slavin, MD, the CTCI Medical and Scientific Director, is internationally renowned for his innovative use of cell therapy and immunotherapy in treating cancer and life-threatening non-malignant diseases.

His pioneering work in cell therapy of cancer by donor lymphocyte infusions (DLI), post allogeneic stem cell transplantation, and nonmyeloablative stem cell transplantation (NST) is now in worldwide use. NST is much safer, less difficult for the patient, and more economical than previously developed procedures.

Prof. Slavin has also developed personalized approaches to treat cancer using immunotherapy mediated by innovative targeted cell therapy and vaccines; to immune-regulate autoimmune diseases; and to induce transplantation tolerance to bone marrow and organ allografts. Prof. Slavin pioneered the use of multi-potent stem cells for regenerative medicine, focusing on down-regulation of harmful self-reactive lymphocytes and repair of damaged tissues and organs.

Prof. Slavin conducts basic clinical research and clinical trials of novel methods to make a patient's immune system effective in targeting and combating the patient's disease. The world's leading peer-reviewed journals have published over 500 articles of his research. He has authored 4 books on his medical research and innovations.

Prof. Slavin earned his MD from the Hadassah Hebrew University School of Medicine in Jerusalem, Israel. He trained in immunology and rheumatology at Stanford University in California and at the Fred Hutchinson Bone Marrow Transplantation Center in Seattle, Washington.
