The IFI Cancer Immunology research program aims to advance the understanding of the immune system's role in neoplastic pathophysiology. Our work spans basic science discoveries, to translational medicine, to clinical care and epidemiology. A major goal is to utilize new insights of immune mechanisms to target malignant cells in relevant in vitro and animal model systems and in human clinical trials.
