Dr. Jensen and his team have developed a method of reprogramming the body’s own immune system to kill cancer without the devastating side effects of radiation and chemotherapy. This technique of genetically re-engineering an individual’s T cells has proven to be safe and effective in the laboratory and is a transformative shift away from the debilitating side effects that surgery, chemotherapy and radiation can have on a child’s developing mind and body. He is a bold visionary - one that is going to change the way pediatric cancers are treated and cured – in our lifetime.
