    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.
