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.
The lecture will be followed by the special screening of Flight of the Butterflies at noon.
