Scientific Interests

Dr. Christopher Seet is a physician scientist whose research focuses on human immune cell developmentÑin particular, T-cell development from hematopoietic and pluripotent stem cells and the development of stem cell-derived engineered cell therapies for cancer. His lab also is interested in the characterization of new tumor?associated antigens and antigen-specific T-cell receptors for the development of new cellular immunotherapy approaches for cancers. Seet is also a clinical hematologist/oncologist who specializes in hematologic malignancies, bone marrow transplantation and cell therapies.
