Encapsulation of CART cells in bioactive nanostructured porous systems for targeted release in solid tumors (CARTsol)


Project information

The Adoptive Cell Therapy group at Cima participates in CARTsol, a project that proposes to combat solid tumors with the creation of capsules capable of releasing CAR-T cells. Like a 'Trojan horse' that hides and protects its 'soldiers' until battle, these these capsules loaded with CAR-T cells will allow a selective release of the 'soldiers' in the tumor.

CARTsol is coordinated by the University of Santiago de Compostela and, within Cima, this interdisciplinary consortium is formed by the Salamanca Cancer Research Center and GALARIA S.A., a public health services company.
