Michael Lotze, MD

University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Department of Surgery (Pittsburgh, PA) Vice Chair of Research

Research Focus: Tumor Infiltrating Gamma Delta T Cells for Pancreatic Cancer Treatment

Cancer Type: Pancreatic Cancer

Award: Investigator Award in Cell and Gene Therapy for Cancer

An immune response to pancreatic cancer has been elusive. With funding from ACGT, Michael T. Lotze, MD, vice chair of research at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Department of Surgery (Pittsburgh, PA) is pioneering the potential of a less appreciated, less abundant, and less studied class of T cells known as gamma delta T cells to confront pancreatic and other solid tumor cancers.
