The mission of ACGT is to seek out and support revolutionary scientific research into the causes, treatment and prevention of all types of cancer using cells and genes as medicine.

Cell and gene therapies are destroying tumors every day in the laboratory and in human trials, targeting only the cancer with few side effects to healthy tissue.  ACGT’s rigorous grant review process, under the guidance of a preeminent Scientific Advisory Council,  have resulted in some of the most successful breakthroughs in the history of cancer treatments and led to many patients in complete remission.
