Director, Program for Advanced Cell Therapy (PACT)

Jacques Galipeau, MD, Marilyn and Don Anderson Professor of Cancer Research and assistant dean for therapeutics discovery and development, has joined the faculty of the Department of Medicine as of September 1, 2016. Dr. Galipeau is an expert in harnessing a patient’s own stem cells to fight cancer, autoimmune diseases, and to restore damaged tissues.

With a bench-to-bedside focus, Dr. Galipeau has developed cell culture advances that enable the therapeutic use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). He has also engineered synthetic cytokines called GIFT fusokines (fusion proteins of granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor and interleukins) that alter the immune system to allow new biopharmaceutical strategies to treat cancer.
