MAIN PROJECT OBJECTIVES

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES

To create a high-level research group for translational onco-immunology based on NK cell engineering and generation of CAR-NK constructs for cancer treatmen

To develop a competitive research workforce and to create a dynamic research environment starting with its employees and providing new jobs for postdoctoral researchersPhD students and laboratory technicians 

To develop an experimental prototype of CAR-NK cells able to specifically recognise and kill tumour cells

To ensure the transfer of knowledge from academia to business 

To ensure the transfer of results to economy through two patents on generation of CAR-NK constructs that can be afterwards developed as cancer treatment method. 

To promote high-quality researchby publishing six scientific papers on the project results and by submitting at least one project proposal to the Horizon 2020 Programme during the 48 months of the CAR-NK project. 

Proiectul CAR-NK se desfășoară în Centrul de terapii genice și celulare în tratamentul cancerului OncoGen - Spitalului Clinic Județean de Urgență Timișoara
