About the STAR-T Platform
The STAR-T platform combines the strengths of traditional cell therapy technologies of CAR-T (Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-Cell Immunotherapy) and TCR-T (T cell receptor engineered T-cell Immunotherapy). Using the TCR machinery, the platform produces STAR-T cells able to potentially generate robust responses against solid tumors with fewer side effects.
