One of our heart projects - stem cell typing action
Take a few minutes of your time and register!
Every day three people in Austria contract blood cancer. In this case, stem cell donations can save lives.
Two out of ten patients with blood cancer cannot find a suitable donor. This is because the chance that two people have matching tissue characteristics is 1:500,000, so it is important that many people register as stem cell donors.
For this reason, IMC FH Krems has organised a stem cell typing campaign in cooperation with the Austrian Red Cross!
So we all have the possibility to register between 10 am and 3 pm on campus, wing G1, room G1.E.25 and this is easily done by a cheek swab and filling out a health questionnaire.
Please note the admission criteria for registration:
- age: 18 - 45 years
- No serious and chronic diseases
- Weight: min. 50kg to max. BMI 40
- Residence for at least 1 year from registration in Austria with Austrian residential address
- Fully completed and signed health questionnaire (to be completed on site). It is in German, so German language skills are required!
We thank you in advance for coming and for your registration!
