The immune system normally identifies and eliminates cancer cells prior to tumor formation. However, cancer cells can induce inhibitory mechanisms that limit antitumor immune activity, allowing for disease progression. In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist and Bio-Techne, Dario Vignali and Peter Westcott will discuss the tug-of-war between cancer cells and the immune system, how cancer cells evade immune cells, and what can be done to circumvent or attenuate these mechanisms for therapeutic purposes.
Topics to be covered
Understanding immune inhibitory mechanisms in cancer
Modeling T-cell dysfunction in colon cancer
