Global Science Café: Michal Šimíček

Cell & Gene Therapy: The future has already begun



Cells like trained tumour killers

One of the main areas of Dr. Šimíček´s research is the development of cell therapy for the treatment of tumours of the hematopoietic system. Cell therapy is a completely new and extremely effective approach in the fight against cancer. Patients are given live cells of the immune system equipped with receptors that help to recognize and eliminate the tumour in a targeted way.
