Better late than never! We kicked off the year right with our department's Oscars themed holiday party. Bring it on 2019!
Lucas Ferrari de Andrade recently showed how MICA antibodies block proteolytic shedding and enable activation of NK cells through the NKG2D and CD16 receptors. This results in potent NK cell-mediated tumor immunity. Read all about it here.
Kai, along with UCSF immunoloist Lewis Lanier, recently discussed the difficulty, direction, and hope of immunotherapy on a recent episode of Science Friday. You can listen here.
Recently released by Nature, this video is a great illustration of how the immune system and cancer interact.
We had a full house as Kai presented on the "Mechanisms of resistance to cancer immunotherapy."
