CAR-T Cell Research at Banner MD Anderson

Since then, our research program has enrolled numerous patients in CAR-T cell clinical trials. Through our research, Banner MD Anderson was able to provide access to a potentially curative treatment prior to FDA approval.

Ongoing Investments in Innovative Cancer Research

Focusing on increasing the diversity of patient populations, expanding data collection and improving novel treatments with new scientific insights, Banner MD Anderson has recently opened a Phase 1 Clinical Research and Infusion Unit. This investment expands the capacity to conduct innovative clinical research in early therapeutics by providing a specialized space to closely monitor patients enrolled in first-in-human and early therapeutic trials.
