Topic: The Emergence of CAR-T Cell Therapy
Christian Capitini, MD, Assistant
Professor at UW School of Medicine and Public Health, will be sharing his research and the latest developments in CAR-T cells.

The Science on Tap series highlights how research from various scientific disciplines such as Chemistry, Engineering, Biology and Genetics is combined to deliver groundbreaking scientific research in our community. Christian will be speaking about the recent developments in chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-modified T (CAR T) cell therapy, a form of immunotherapy that harnesses the power of a patient’s own immune cells to treat cancer.
