Seth Pollack MD

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Assistant Professor, Oncology

Research Focus: Immunotherapy

Cancer Type: Sarcoma

Award: Clinical Investigator

Dr. Pollack’s research is focused on developing novel immunotherapies for patients with advanced sarcoma, specifically synovial sarcoma (SS) and myxoid/round cell liposarcoma (MRCL). Dr. Pollack’s ACGT grant will further his research by using immunotherapy to target this rare form of cancer that grows in connective tissue – cells that support other body tissues such as in bones, muscles, tendons, etc. The initial clinical trial will deploy two different types of genetically engineered T cells to target the cancer and to assess efficacy and safety.
