The development of DC vaccination strategies to boost Th17 immunity in ovarian cancer patients represents a significant step forward, but there remains the question of whether DC vaccination alone would be sufficient to provide clinical benefit in the face of continuing local immune suppression in the tumor microenvironment. In partnership with investigators at MD Anderson Cancer Center, the Mayo Clinic and the University of Pennsylvania, our laboratory is focused on strategies that alleviate myeloid cell-mediated immune suppression and boost the efficacy of DC vaccination and other immunotherapies for ovarian cancer.

The seminars are open to UCL & UCLH staff, students and their visitors. Please contact alison.kelly@ucl.ac.uk for all enquires
