Michael P. Gustafson, Ph.D., is the scientific director of the Nyberg Human Cellular Therapy Laboratory at Mayo Clinic's Arizona campus. Dr. Gustafson and his team are focused on developing and translating cell- and immune-based therapies for the treatment of cancer, autoimmunity and other diseases into clinical trials. Dr. Gustafson's research also encompasses understanding systemic immunity in humans, how cancer alters the immune landscape in humans and how physical activity may be used to improve immune responses to immunotherapy.
The intersection of Dr. Gustafson's interests in cellular therapy, human immunology and biomarker development all contribute to the goal of optimizing biomanufacturing processes to increase the efficacy of cell therapy products used in investigational new drug trials. He and his team also provide quality and regulatory expertise during the translational process of clinical trial development. Finally, Dr. Gustafson and his lab foster critical collaborations with researchers and clinicians to bring novel cellular therapies to patients.
