Overview

The mission of the Mass General Cellular Immunotherapy Program is to invent, develop, administer, and understand engineered immune effector cells. Our approach is to expand cellular engineering and immunotherapy research by bringing together physicians and laboratory scientists focused on immune cell engineering and its clinical effects. We aim to enhance the cohesion between biological, translational, and clinical aspects of cell engineering to implement safe and potent immunotherapies, with the ultimate goal of developing curative treatments for cancer and other diseases.

Our objectives:

We aim to enhance the cohesion between biological, translational, and clinical aspects of cell engineering to implement safe and potent immunotherapies.

  • Bring together clinical researchers who administer, manage, and/or investigate immune effector cells as a therapeutic modality
  • Enable translational research and collaboration
  • Optimize immune monitoring and laboratory correlatives of clinical observations
  • Promote cellular therapy education through education sessions
  • Provide high quality care and management of patients receiving cellular therapies
  • Obtain and maintain FACT accreditation for the administration of immune effector cells
  • Invent and develop novel forms of cellular engineering that will become the next generation of immune cell therapies
