Roaming around the body is a group of natural killer (NK) cells that innately detect and destroy abnormal cells. In recent years, the success of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy has brought the possibility of modifying NK cells into focus as a novel immunotherapeutic. In this webinar, Dean A. Lee will discuss the unique advantages of using NK cells for CAR therapy and the latest developments in their clinical utility.
Topics to be covered
- CAR NK cells vs. CAR T cells
- NK cell genetic engineering
- Targets and applications of CAR NK cell therapy
Wednesday, September 14th, 2022 | 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time
