Project overview

The overarching goal of the project is to develop CAR T cells genetically equipped for improved expansion, persistence, and anti-tumor function. We will achieve this by the genetic integration of transcription factors (TFs) into CAR T cells. In addition, we will explore the mechanisms by which TFs can improve the therapeutic efficacy of CAR T cells, and with this new understanding of T cell biology, lay the foundations for the development of more effective cellular immunotherapies for cancer. Please see section “Project phases and realisation” for more information.

We are open for collaborations, if you’re interested please contact dr Anže Smole.
