FUS Foundation sponsors LSI and Arvanitis Lab to fight brain tumors

The Focused Ultrasound Foundation awarded a 1.5-year grant to remotely control thermal sensitive CAR T cells in the brain by MR-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS). This collaborative project between LSI and Dr. Costas Arvanitis’s Ultrasound Biophysics and Bioengineering Laboratory is focused on spatially controlling CAR T cells under MRgFUS to mitigate antigen escape and potentiate anti-tumor responses in difficult-to-treat breast cancer brain metastases.
