Cell therapy research involves investigating novel uses of cells for treating a disease or disorder. Cell-based therapies resulting from this research have the potential to treat a range of systemic diseases by acting as "living drugs".
A variety of cell types may be used as cell therapies, including hematopoietic stem cells, pluripotent stem cells, immune cells, and more. These cells may be purified (e.g. bone marrow transplants), expanded, or further manipulated through genome editing (e.g. CAR T cells).
With new techniques and technologies, cell therapy research is evolving quickly. We have collected a series of scientific resources to help you explore this exciting and complex field:
