The Institut Bordet Clinical Haematology Department specialises in determining and treating diseases of the blood.

The Institut Bordet is committed to the treatment of these diseases and to offering patients high-quality, individual treatment.

In addition to the traditional approach to blood diseases, the Institut is also engaged in the development of innovative and complex techniques and therapies.

The Institut’s mission covers three main university fields: clinical, research and teaching.

The multidisciplinary nature of the Department, in both its diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, forms an integral part of all decisions concerning the patient.
