Explore the Cellular Therapeutics & Transplantation Laboratory
The Cellular Therapeutics & Transplantation Laboratory (CTTL) team plays an integral part in stem cell processing, transplant infusions and bone marrow harvests at Mass General Cancer Center. Technologists also participate in numerous immunotherapy clinical trials to aid in the progression of research and improve patients’ lives.
All cellular products are processed by the lab’s technologists prior to infusion. Technologists handle products ranging from autologous to allogeneic stem cells, cord blood cells and immune effector cells, such as CAR-T cells. They assist with bone marrow collections, and process and assist in the transplantation of these cellular products. Depending on the compatibility of the product to the recipient, the technologist may perform lengthy processing procedures prior to infusion.
