​Prof. Ulrike Köhl, Ph.D., M.D. is an immunologist and a Qualified Person and since December 2017 full professor for immune oncology at the University of Leipzig as well as the head of the Fraunhofer Institute for Cellular Therapeutics and Immunology in Leipzig, Germany. From 2012 - 2017 she was a full professor and the director of the Institute of Cellular Therapeutics at the Hannover Medical School, Germany. Currently she is sharing a position between Leipzig and Hannover in order to set up a network for advanced cellular therapeutics. She studied both, biology and medicine, received her PhD in 1995 and continued her scientific work at the MD Anderson Cancer Centre in Houston, USA. In 1999 she became the head of the laboratory of stem cell transplantation and immunotherapy in the Paediatric Haematology and Oncology at the University Hospital, Frankfurt, Germany.

All her goals have a clinical focus on the development and manufacturing of advanced cell-based therapies and the improvement of cell processing strategies. One further, but closely related focus of her work includes flow-cytometric quality control for Somatic Cell Therapy as well as Gene Therapy products, the determination of functional capability and multivariate immune reconstitution models to optimize the time points for cell-based therapies in stem cell and organ transplantation and in cancer treatment. She has a specific focus on primary human NK cells including chimeric antigen receptors (CAR) expressing NK cells. In addition she is working on harmonization of cell based therapies in international consortia. She is a member of numerous national and international societies and is serving as a reviewer for the European Medicine Agency.
