Innovation Grant Lightning Talk:
"Unleashing engineered T cells as disease sensors and therapeutic actuators for neurodegenerative disease"
Aaron D. Gitler (PI), Rogelio Hernández-López and Alice Ting will explore whether amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD) result from immune cells attacking altered neurons. The team aims to pioneer the use of engineered immune cells as therapies for neurodegenerative disorders.
