Welcome to the Hudecek Lab – The home of CAR T

Our research

We are developing novel personalized immune-based cancer treatments that are free from chemotherapy.

Our approach

We are equipping T cells (white blood cells) with a biosensor (chimeric antigen receptor, CAR) to help them detect and eliminate cancer cells.
