8 November: Jiaqi Li (JCR), 'Engineering Natural Killer cells for Cancer Immunotherapy'
‘Cancer immunotherapy is an exciting new field in cancer treatment. Besides the conventional T cell-based immunotherapy, there is now a shift in focus towards natural killer (NK) cells. Last summer, I spent some time in Karolinska Institutet working on engineering NK cells with new chimeric receptors, with the aim of enhancing their cytotoxicity and tumour-killing capabilities.’
