Welcome to the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center for Cancer Immunotherapeutics & Tumor Immunology at City of Hope.
The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center is a five-story, 119,000-square-foot facility dedicated to cancer research and the education of future scientists.
The building features:
- Laboratories for research and development of immune system-based cancer therapies
- The Harvey L. Miller Family Foundation Translational Technologies Center, which includes T-cell production areas to manufacture immunotherapies on site for patient treatment
- A radiopharmacy for diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicines
- The Cabilly-Riggs Academic Center, home to City of Hope’s Irell & Manella Graduate School of Biological Sciences
A self-contained and integrated research environment, the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center is devoted to realizing immunotherapy through translational research – a unique integration of basic science with clinical studies and patient care.
Discovery and Innovation: Infinite Possibilities
Translational research creates a continuum of discovery, advancement and innovation by taking knowledge gained at each stage of research and applying it to the next stage:
- Discoveries from the lab become experimental therapies
- Information from clinical trials of these therapies then cycles back to researchers who further refine and improve them.
The result is an ongoing advancement of new, more effective treatments.
