Ask A Scientist:How Can Studying Antigen-Specific T Cells Help Us Make CAR T Cells More Powerful?

In the last few years, CAR T cell-based immunotherapies have shown great promise in clinical trials, and scientists are continuing to advance their knowledge with hopes of developing CAR T cell therapies for a range of cancers. CAR T cells are designed to essentially function as antigen-specific T cells, which can be difficult to collect…
