Back to Immuno-Oncology Scientific Updates: An Introduction to CAR T-Cell Therapy
ASCP Scientific Updates are a quarterly series of 30-minute on-demand webcasts containing up-to-the-minute information on various therapeutic agents, disease states, and thresholds that impact immuno-oncology diagnostics in solid tumors and hematologic malignancies.
This webcast provides an overview of CAR T-cell therapy.
This webcast will provide participants with a basic understanding of CAR T cell biology and design. You’ll learn about activation of B cells and T cells, as well as current CAR T cell targets. This webcast will also provide an overview of how CAR T cells are manufactured and describe future directions in the field.
As a result of participating in this course, learners will be able to:
- Describe the basics on CAR T-cell biology and design
- Discuss currently available CAR T-cell therapy targets
- Explain highlights of the CAR T-cell manufacturing process
- Discuss the future of CAR T cell therapy
