This session will explore novel preparation strategies and applications of Natural Killer (NK) cells, from the generation of NK cells to innovative therapeutic uses NK cell products. Innovative methods and applications of ex vivo expanded NK cells and cord blood NK cells engineered with a CAR will be discussed.
Discuss biopreservation concerns and optimization, and translation into immune cell therapy/regenerative medicine manufacturing and clinical application.
Discuss use of human cord blood to produce NK cells engineered with a CAR to redirect specificity and enhance persistence.
Describe approaches to isolation and ex vivo expansion of NK cells.
