The Centre for Blood Transplant and Cell Therapies (CBTCT) brings together the largest allogeneic stem cell transplant units in Australia with a focus on identifying transplant and cell therapy strategies to reduce graft versus host disease and improve patient and disease outcomes after transplant. In this webinar series, speakers will review major topics in stem cell transplantation and cell therapy, highlighting how key advances are addressing the current challenges in stem cell transplantation. The ninth webinar in this series features Professor Catherine Bollard, who is the current Program Director for Cell Enhancement and Technologies at the Children’s National Hospital and Professor of Pediatrics and Microbiology, Immunology and Tropical Medicine at the George Washington University. Her bench and translational research has focused on improving post-transplant outcomes through developing novel cellular therapeutics, leading to over 200 peer reviewed publications. In this webinar, Professor Bollard will be outlining the role of virus-specific T cell therapies following transplantation as well as their potential applications for treating COVID-19.
