We are thrilled to announce that Mass General Cancer Center’s Marcela Maus, MD, PhD has been chosen to be featured in a first-of-its-kind collaboration between Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), American Airlines, and Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War.

The inspiring initiative and public service announcement features beloved Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War heroes, esteemed SU2C researchers, and American Airlines team members who have personally fought cancer. The goal of this campaign is to raise funds, awareness and further Stand Up To Cancer’s mission to bring groundbreaking therapies and treatments to patients as quickly as possible.

Dr. Maus is the Director of Cellular Immunotherapy here at the Mass General Cancer Center, and her work is focused on creating new and improved immunotherapy treatments for patients.

“I definitely didn’t expect that being a physician/scientist would put me in the same league as the Marvel superheroes!’ Marcela told us. ‘I’m so grateful to SU2C, not just for funding our cancer research work, but also for their intellectual and programmatic support, and for the public service they do by raising awareness of cancer research and the progress that doctors and scientists are making in treating cancer.’”
