What does NK-CLK stand for?
It stands for “Natural Killer – Cytotoxic Lymphocyte King.” The research team coined this name in honor of Chen Ling Kou, who passed away after a 4-year battle with pancreatic cancer in April 2019. She was a beloved mother, wife, and friend who radiated warmth and kindness. The team sorely misses her and hopes to continue to honor her memory.
