Boston Harper Lecture: Engineering Immunotherapies for Cancer
Cancer arises from irregular cell growth, but tumors can also grow and metastasize through compromised immune systems.
Cancer immunotherapy aims to train the immune system to destroy tumor cells and help it “remember” to attack those cells to prevent relapse. Melody Swartz of the Institute for Molecular Engineering will discuss this innovative and promising approach to tumor treatment, which requires ongoing research into changes in immune regulation in different types of cancer.
