Talk:
Stem Cell-derived T-cells for Immunotherapy

Overview:Engineered T-cell therapies are being used clinically to treat cancers. Blood stem cells could provide an alternative source of engineered T-cells that reduces manufacturing costs and deliver a more potent therapeutic. This talk will focus on recent work to generate T-cells in vitro in a defined system that is amenable for clinical translation. It will discuss the use of quantitative modelling to predict changes in cytokine responses during differentiation of stem cells into T-cells, and how these models can be optimized to increase the yield and purity of generated T-cells.
