Dr. Christian Capitini is a physician and researcher in pediatric cancer who joined the faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Madison as an Assistant Professor in 2011, and leads an NIH and NSF funded laboratory with a focus on immunotherapy of pediatric cancers. The goal of his research group is to identify and modify cells from our immune system, and program them to fight cancer. For example, his group was the first to track natural killer cells within tumors by MRI. In addition, he is improving the biomanufacturing of CAR T cells against cancers like leukemia, lymphoma and more recently neuroblastoma. He is also developing macrophages as a cell-based treatment for radiation injury.
