A research team at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University and Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) has developed a simple intervention to help treat specific cancer cells.  A biodegradable scaffold material studied in a mouse model was locally injected under the skin and used to restimulate CAR-T cells that were administered to increase their therapeutic effect.
