Center for Cell and Gene Therapy


About Us


The Center for Cell and Gene Therapy interacts with basic research and clinical departments at Baylor College of Medicine and affiliated hospitals to discover and develop novel therapies for a range of diseases including cancer, HIV and cardiovascular diseases. The approach brings a variety of scientists and clinicians together to develop strategies. It is our intention to have the capability of moving basic pre-clinical discoveries into the clinical phase of development for initial evaluation in our patients. We have the resources to manufacture a range of viral and non-viral vectors to transfer genes of interest and the capability of separating and manipulating human cells. These combined genetic and cellular therapies should enable us to treat a range of conditions, both congenital and acquired, in almost every system of the body.
