We would like to invite you to the following outstanding Rudolf Virchow Lecture:
Prof. Stanley Riddell, MD
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center,
University of Washington, USA
He will talk about “Recent innovations in engineered cellular therapies”.
Background: Riddell is a world leader in a type of immunotherapy called CAR T-cell therapy. In this approach, a patient’s T cells are genetically reprogrammed to carry a synthetic receptor called a chimeric antigen receptor, or CAR, that enables the T cells to bind to and destroy target cells.
The Rudolf Virchow Lecture is organised by the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Würzburg, the new “Mildred-Scheel-Nachwuchszentrum für Krebsforschung” and by the Rudolf Virchow Center.
