Live from the Lab presents Building Better Cancer Immunotherapy
June 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm
Please join La Jolla Institute for Immunology’s Associate Professor, Dr. Sonia Sharma, as she explains the process of developing effective cancer immunotherapies. The Center for Cancer Immunotherapy at LJI is at the forefront of exploring new and sometimes unexpected avenues for novel immune-based cancer treatments, as well as predicting and improving the effectiveness of existing immunotherapies. Dr. Sharma’s work integrates cutting-edge genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, as well as computational and translational approaches to define the key genetic mechanisms regulating cellular innate immunity, and to determine how they impact human health and disease. In this Live from the Lab discussion, she will describe how her and her colleagues’ research in cancer immunotherapies supports our overarching goal – achieving Life Without Disease®.
ABOUT THE LIVE FROM THE LAB SERIES:
The Live from the Lab webinar series takes viewers inside LJI’s renowned scientific laboratories and introduces them to LJI’s distinguished scientists and their cutting-edge research. During this hour-long webinar, viewers will receive a virtual behind-the-scenes look as LJI scientists and leadership address the immune system’s response to pressing global health challenges facing society today. We look forward to having you join us and welcome you to share this opportunity with family and friends that may be interested in learning more about LJI.
ABOUT LA JOLLA INSTITUTE FOR IMMUNOLOGY:
