Moffitt Cancer Center, the founding anchor of Speros, aims to expand its nation-leading oncology research and cell and gene therapies in Tampa. Currently the only Florida-based National Cancer Institute—designated comprehensive cancer center, Moffitt’s extensive clinical trials and treatments in cellular immunotherapy are redefining treatment for many current and future cancer patients.
