Targeted Immunotherapies for Cancer

SRI's Brown Laboratory is taking multiple approaches to develop effective anti-cancer immunotherapies.

Recently, much effort has been placed on harnessing the power of the patient’s immune system to recognize and destroy tumor cells, in the same fashion that the immune system neutralizes infectious pathogens.

To develop effective anti-cancer immunotherapies, SRI's Brown Laboratory is taking multiple approaches. We are developing strategies to deliver antigens to specialized antigen presenting cells of the immune system to generate a rapid and robust immune response against tumors.

The laboratory is also developing a novel non-viral therapy designed to generate a secondary immune response toward the tumor bypassing the need to identify a tumor antigen or educate the immune system.
