Stanford Medicine Center for Cancer Cell Therapy


Improve the lives of patients suffering from cancer by conducting cutting-edge basic and clinical research and providing the highest quality patient care. Strive to have a lasting and meaningful impact on the lives of every patient that we treat.


Be a sustainable exemplar for translation science at Stanford Medicine and beyond.

The Stanford Medicine Center for Cancer Cell Therapy (CCT) has driven new scientific discoveries, improved the safety and efficacy of CAR-T cell therapies, and conducted cutting-edge translational research.

Working closely with the Stanford Cancer Institute to recruit new faculty members and engage existing ones in this new area of research, CCT has amassed an impressive team of scholars who are collectively engaged in advancing the field and the work of the Center.

Our model for bench-to-bedside-to-bench research is an exemplar for efforts throughout Stanford Medicine to apply fundamental discoveries to advance human health.
