About the Presentation

Antibodies have become a part of the standard cancer therapy armamentarium. These versatile platforms can be used to deliver toxic payloads or to manipulate cancer cell signaling. Exciting clinical results with immune checkpoint inhibitors demonstrate that antibodies can powerfully modulate the anti-cancer immune response. Our work focuses on using antibodies to manipulate hot immunity and to understand mechanisms of tumor resistance that can be attacked to promote effective antibody-targeted cancer immunotherapy.
