Once again, Kristen Hege is checking back in at Endpoints with her latest column inspired by her 2,658-mile thru-hike along an adventure-filled Pacific Crest Trail. This column looks back at the early days of CAR-T research work and the key figures that helped pioneer the field.
Hege’s journey has inspired a wide variety of people to contribute a growing, six-figure sum to her campaign to raise money to help recruit young women to the lab of Carl June and Bruce Levine, who are featured in the column below. This is her fourth column. Please consider a contribution of your own as we aim for a $500,000 goal. You can contribute directly on this link at Penn. — John Carroll
