All novel immunodiagnostic tests of the three consortia are being developed and standardized for direct application in diagnostic care for patients with hematological malignancies, suspicion of immunodeficiency, or inflammatory diseases or for evaluation of immune responses after infection or vaccination. Many of these diagnostic tests are not only used in Europe, but have become world-wide standards.
On Monday, October 10, Prof. Dr. Jacques J.M. van Dongen received an honorary doctorate (Doctor Honoris Causa) from Charles University in Prague. He has been awarded this honorary doctorate for the successful initiation and long-term coordination of three large European Consortia (EuroFlow, EuroClonality and EuroMRD) in the field of innovative molecular and cellular diagnostics in Immunology and Hematology.
