Sharp Minds Lecture Series

The Fleet Science Center is very excited to bring the Sharp Minds Lecture series back to an in-person event in the beautiful Heikoff Giant Dome Theater.

 

It’s not an overstatement to say that immunotherapy—an approach that uses our own immune system to kill a tumor—has revolutionized the treatment of cancer. Doctors continue to report incredible results, including tough-to-treat tumors seemingly melting away. However, the treatment doesn’t work for everyone, and even if it does work initially, it often stops working as time goes on.  Jennifer Hope, Ph.D., a postdoctoral researcher in the Bradley lab at Sanford Burnham Prebys, is working to find ways to make cancer immunotherapy work for more people.
