100% of every dollar you give supports new research directed by Dr. Renier Brentjens at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). Dr. Brentjens’ lab focuses on immunotherapy research to treat acute and chronic leukemias.
Specifically (if anyone was curious - I know I was when we all first started running together back in 2018), the Brentjen lab specifically works on developing CAR-T cells, or in other words, extracting and engineering patients' immune cells to specifically recognize surface markers expressed by cancer cells (lymphomas and leukemias) by having the patient's T cells artifically express chimeric T cell receptors!
It's really cool stuff, and it's why I can reassure you that this money is going to a great cause! Thank you for the support :)
