Jennifer Adair, Ph.D.

Gene Therapy — Using DNA to Treat Diseases

Dr. Adair works to leverage the Hutch’s expertise in blood stem cells to generate new treatments for cancer and related diseases. Using genetic manipulation, she and her team shield healthy blood cells, enabling a more effective use of chemotherapy to treat aggressive brain tumors. Her innovative work has the potential to correct genetic blood disorders, treat HIV and improve brain cancer treatment.
