Immunologists to share cutting-edge discoveries at annual workshop


This white oral squamous cancer cell is being attacked by two cytotoxic T cells, which is part of the natural immune response. Researchers are creating personalized cancer vaccines by loading neoantigens from the patient’s tumor into nanoparticles. When these are presented with immune stimulants, the patient’s own immune system is activated and the cytotoxic T cells expand to fight the tumor.  Photo credit:  National Cancer Institute/Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center at Baylor College of Medicine
