French biotech company Cellectis has been granted a European patent to use CRISPR in T cells valid until 2034.  Cellectis hopes to use this technology to edit T cells for cancer therapy. While other companies are pursuing similar treatments, Cellectis hopes to develop a universal CAR-T cell line that can be widely used without tailoring treatment to individuals.
