Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy will hold the 2023 ACGT Awards Luncheon next month to celebrate our 20th anniversary and our continued commitment to advancing cancer cell and gene therapy!
The event will be held Thursday, March 30, from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at Riverpark restaurant at the Alexandria Center for Life Science at 450 E. 29th Street in New York City. Ticket purchases for the ACGT Awards Luncheon should be made as soon as possible as space is limited.
Our keynote speaker will be the pioneering physician, oncologist, Pulitzer Prize-winning science writer and New York Times best-selling author Siddhartha Mukherjee, MD, who has redefined our public discourse on human health, medicine and science. His innovative research signals a paradigm shift in cancer pathology and has enabled the development of treatments that reach beyond current pharmaceutical models toward new biological and cellular therapies.
ACGT will also honor Crystal Mackall, MD, of Stanford University, with the Edward Netter Leadership Award for her commitment and dedication to pursuing cell and gene therapy solutions for difficult-to-treat cancers. In addition to being an ACGT Research Fellow and a member of ACGT’s Scientific Advisory Council, Dr. Mackall is the Ernest and Amelia Gallo Family Professor of Pediatrics and Medicine at Stanford University, the Founding Director of the Stanford Center for Cancer Cell Therapy, Associate Director of the Stanford Cancer Institute, Leader of the Cancer Immunotherapy Program and Director of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy.
