Researchers in Boston are developing an exciting new method to fight cancer. This technology, called CAR T-cell therapy, collects a patient’s immune cells and programs them to target their particular type of cancer. The cells are then reinjected to attack and kill the cancerous cells. Advancement of this potentially life-saving treatment will require an alliance between physicians, hospitals, biopharmaceutical manufacturers, and the life sciences industry to shorten and streamline what is now a complex, four- to six-week process. This panel will feature Boston leaders who are on the frontlines of CAR T-cell therapy to discuss current achievements, looming challenges, and the path forward to success.
