Adoptive Cell Transfer Incorporating Vaccination (Activ) Therapy For Cancer
Grant number: 1103352 | Funding period: 2016 - 2018
We have made a breakthrough in a new treatment for cancer that can destroy large tumours in mice. The treatment involves a transfusion of white blood cells and an injection of a vaccine. In this project, we will seek to understand how the treatment works, and apply it to human white blood cells in preparation for a clinical trial in cancer patients.
