NextGen PH & EFCC Cancer Science Seminar - Dr. Haval Shirwan presenting
Join us in person at the Tom & Linda Atkins Family Seminar room in the NextGen Building or virtually for our monthly NextGen PH and EFCC Cancer Science Seminar.
Advances in the basic understanding of immune regulation in health and disease have resulted in innovative approaches to harness the power of the immune system to fight chronic diseases with underpinning immune dysregulation. In particular, recent advances in the onco-immunology field where immune checkpoint blockers are shown to generate impressive clinical outcomes for various cancer types galvanized the field and positioned the immune system at the forefront of approaches to treat cancer. Dr. Shirwan’s presentation will focus on the notion that the immune system can also be trained to recognize transformed cells and eliminate them before cancer takes hold in the body. He will present preclinical data demonstrating that an immune checkpoint molecule as a single agent invokes an innate immune surveillance mechanism with long-term protection against various types of cancer.
