Fighting cancer using a genetically engineered immune system

Project Description

White blood cells of the immune system can cure cancer in rare cases. However, in most patients the immune system does not recognise cancer as a danger. By genetically engineering white blood cells we will enable the immune system to recognise and fight cancer.
