CBTE Kewaunee Poster Session & Lecture: Biomaterials as Therapeutic Cancer Vaccines
Thursday, April 9, 2015
3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Fitzpatrick Center Schiciano Auditorium
David Mooney, Ph.D. Professor of Bioengineering School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Harvard University
Kewaunee Poster Session: 3:30pm - 4:30pm; Kewaunee-BioE Lecture: 4:30pm - 5:30pm. Dr. Mooney's lab is developing biomaterials that provide controlled delivery of immunomodulatory factors, in certain ways mimicking aspects of microbial infection, to target immune cells in the body and bypass the need to manipulate cells in the laboratory. These material strategies allow control over immune cell trafficking and activation, promote potent responses to cancer antigens, and cause tumor regression in preclinical models.
