Prof. Dr. med. Klaus H. Metzeler, MD

Professor of Translational Haematology, University of Leipzig, Germany

Professor Klaus MetzelerProfessor Metzeler is a hemato-oncologist and physician who has pursued molecular cancer genetics throughout his career.

Following early work in the establishment of an NGS testing program for hematological malignancies he has gone on to research translational biomarker studies in myeloid neoplasms including MRD, the genetics and clinical relevance of clonal hematopoiesis, and quality of life in AML survivors.

In this AMP 2023 session, Professor Metzeler describes the current technology landscape and prognostic relevance of minimal residual disease (MRD) detection and demonstrates his experience using NGS-based MRD detection in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), including OGT’s NGS-based SureSeq™ Myeloid MRD Panel.

His results highlight the breadth of clinically relevant variants, including FLT3-ITD mutations, being confidently detected by NGS and the potential application of the SureSeq Myeloid MRD Panel as a tool for further investigation of MRD in AML samples.
