About Antonio 

I am a biochemist from Malaga with a masters in Translational Investigation by the University of Navarra, where I came in contact with pediatric oncology and brain tumors. While I worked there, I came across the Máxima Butterfly Program.

My Project: CAR-T cell therapy for the treatment of pediatric ependymoma and diffuse-midline glioma (DMG)

Pediatric brain tumors, such as DMG or ependymas, most specifically posterior fossa type A (PFA) ependymomas are still an unmet clinical need. Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T cell therapy has recently become a very promising immunotherapeutic tool in oncology, which could prove to be a very auspicious approach to this type of cancer, that is what we are focusing on.
