Natural killer (NK) cells are specialized immune cells that can recognize and destroy threats, including cancer. Due to their unique capabilities, they have great potential in cancer immunotherapy, with multiple NK cell-based approaches already being evaluated in clinical trials.
In this webinar, we’ll explore how NK cells work and how we might apply them against cancer, with renowned NK cell expert Lewis L. Lanier, Ph.D., and Oscar A. Aguilar, Ph.D., a Cancer Research Institute (CRI) fellow in Dr. Lanier’s lab at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).
The “Cancer Immunotherapy and You” webinar series is produced by the Cancer Research Institute and is hosted by our senior science writer, Arthur N. Brodsky, Ph.D. The 2021 series is made possible with generous support from Bristol Myers Squibb and Alkermes.
