Innate Immune Cells in Cancer Immunotherapy

21 January 2022

Event Name: 

ACTRIS Cell Therapy Lecture Series: Innate Immune Cells in Cancer Immunotherapy

Date: 

21 Jan 2022

Time: 

12 to 1pm

Synopsis: 

Innate immune cells, such as innate lymphoid cells and γδ T-cells, are critical in establishing the tumour microenvironment, as well as initiating and regulating anti-tumour adaptive immune responses. Its direct cytotoxicity against tumour cells, which is independent of MHC presentation and regulatory functions, can be harnessed to combat cancer in the form of adoptive therapy.

This talk will discuss the clinical development in NK and γδ T-cell immunotherapy and pre-clinical efforts to enhance their therapeutic efficacies.
