The Center for Cell Engineering (CCE) at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center was established to foster research on cellular therapies. Our goal is to expand cell engineering research through a collaborative synergy between Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center physicians and scientists.

To attain this goal, the CCE is bringing together researchers who are investigating areas that encompass stem cell engineering, immune cell engineering, cell delivery and bone marrow transplantation, the transfer and regulation of genes in human cells, and gene repair. This physician-scientist partnership draws on researchers from both Memorial Hospital and the Sloan Kettering Institute and will ultimately allow us to devise and implement innovative clinical investigations.

Mission and Scope

Annual Retreat

The Tenth Annual Center for Cell Engineering Retreat focused on Clinical Application of CAR T cells. It was held on November 16 and 17, 2017.
