The treatment of cancer, and other diseases, is being transformed by powerful new cellular therapies using immune cells from our own bodies. Cancer is personal—we all know someone afflicted with cancer. What if we could treat cancer differently? In this talk, Chris shares how recent scientific breakthroughs have led to advances in cell therapy treatments which will empower us to fight cancer and other diseases using our own immune cells and will help us take control of our healing journeys.
