One of the most impactful ways to support groundbreaking cell and gene therapy research and the advancement of innovative cancer immunotherapy treatments is by making a recurring gift to ACGT.

In the fight against cancer, every dollar counts, which is why Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT) is grateful for every donation to cancer research.

ACGT’s mission is to fund innovative scientists and biotechnology companies working to harness the power of cell and gene therapy to eliminate cancer. ACGT awards grants to scientists who are conducting research projects and clinical trials to develop and test cell and gene therapies such as CAR T-cell therapy, oncolytic virus therapy, engineered T-cell receptor therapy and others. These therapies have the potential to transform cancer treatment by destroying cancer cells while avoiding any harm to healthy tissue and many of the side effects associated with chemotherapy.

ACGT’s funding has led to groundbreaking clinical trials and the FDA approvals of several CAR T-cell therapies for blood cancers. The organization’s focus is now on advancing cell and gene therapies for solid tumors such as lung cancer, brain cancer, pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, and sarcomas.

One of the most impactful ways to support groundbreaking cell and gene therapy research and the advancement of innovative cancer immunotherapy treatments is by making a recurring gift to ACGT. This commitment to giving provides numerous benefits to cancer patients, their families, and donors like you.

Here are 10 reasons to donate to cancer research with a gift to ACGT:
