Our world class center

Roswell Park’s leadership in oncology care, cancer research and biotech innovation is focused on increasing the number of patients we can help, furthering development of next-generation therapies and speeding ability to bring game-changing treatments to the patients who need them. 

  • World-renowned team of physicians and scientists — who were central to historic breakthroughs in immunotherapy strategies and development of today’s FDA-approved treatments.
  • Named New York State's first cell and gene therapy hub to accelerate development and manufacturing of these cutting-edge treatments. 
  • A member of the Cancer Immunotherapy Trials Network (CITN). Our place among this network of 40+ elite universities and cancer centers in the United States means we are at the cutting edge of this field. 

Our clinical expertise

Patients who receive cellular therapies should be treated at a center where the medical team has significant experience in delivering these newest immunotherapies and recognizing and managing the side effects. Our team includes leaders who have decades of experience in developing these approaches, treating patients with these therapies, and in recognizing, predicting and mitigating side effects. In addition:

Our cutting-edge facilities

Cell therapy requires the ability to engineer and manufacture those therapeutic cells in a sophisticated, dedicated facility built for that purpose. Few centers across the country were involved in cell-based cancer treatments at any level when we opened our Therapeutic Cell Production Facility with one cell production “clean room” in 2010. Today, our facility includes:

  • Six cell production clean rooms — and 14 more are under construction now! Our ability to keep cell production in house eliminates the need to rely on external manufacturing partners and helps us to open more clinical trials faster. Patients who need these treatments don’t have time to wait.
  • Clinical Research Center. This inpatient unit is designed especially for patients receiving treatments as part of a clinical trial.
