Our immune system surveys our bodies for tumors, which it can eliminate. However, over time, tumors learn to escape immune surveillance mechanisms and immune cells become exhausted, resulting in malignancies. In this Front Row lecture, Scripps Research associate professor Silke Paust will share how her laboratory is using powerful immunological and imaging techniques to understand what immune cells need to infiltrate and eradicate solid tumors and their metastatic tissues. This research will address knowledge gaps in the tumor immunology field and enable the design of safe and effective immunotherapy products for difficult-to-treat, highly metastatic cancers.
