Text on screen: Changing the paradigm of cancer treatment
VO: Here at Kite in Hoofddorp, we receive the sample of the patient’s blood. In a cleanroom environment, we humans are the biggest risk. So before entering the suite, we have a full gowning. That’s to ensure that we have no particles shedding from our faces into the suite. After we also have a coverall, we don it over our pajamas. When we are done, we step over to the B grades, and then you are in the suite. Working in cell therapy is really different than working in traditional pharma because we literally hold the patient’s blood in our hands. When you are in the cleanroom, then you are with three people and every one of them has a different role at that moment. But still, you are working together and you are helping each other. I feel really close to the patient. That has, for me, the highest emotional value.
