The Hingtgen lab aims to take advantage of the inherent ability of stem cells to migrate to cancerous cells in the body by engineering stem cells and using them as deliverers of anti-cancer agents. This therapy has the potential to aid in the treatment of terminal cancers such as brain, breast, and lung cancer by working on a small scale capable of targeting individual diseased cells.
