The trial is being conducted at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center under the direction of principal investigator Dr Abhishek Maiti, Assistant Professor in the Department of Leukemia at MD Anderson.

The trial has received FDA IND and MDACC IRB clearance and is scheduled to begin enrollment in late 2023 with only nominal funding from Chimeric.
