What is Immunotherapy?

Immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses the body’s immune system to find and attack cancer cells.

Our goal is to understand how immune responses against tumors are initiated, maintained and evaded, with the hope of improving the ability of the immune system to eradicate cancer.
