Revving up the immune system against cancer and neurodegenerative disorders
How do cancer cells survive almost no matter what we throw at them? How do they outsmart us, the body, and their environment? When and how do they acquire their advantages over the immune system and other defense mechanisms the body surveys all the time?
These are the kind of questions that keep Huda Salman, MD, and her colleagues up at night.
At the Brown Center for Immunotherapy, Dr. Salman leads a team of physicians and scientists determined to defeat cancer using the body’s innate defenses—and pioneer the use of this powerful technology in other debilitating conditions like Alzheimer’s disease.
And working with leaders from private industry, we’re also developing new ways to make this highly specialized therapy accessible to larger numbers of patients.
