Immunobiology Program

Program Leaders: Robert Vonderheide, MD, DPhil and Warren Pear, MD, PhD

The Immunobiology Program aims to:

  • Understand the fundamental aspects of immune biology, including activation, differentiation, inactivation, and transformation as these relate to cancer
  • Forge a comprehensive understanding of tumor immune surveillance using state-of-the-art in vitro, animal model, and human experimental systems
  • Translate novel clinical strategies for immunotherapy of cancer by the design, implementation, and analysis of proof-of-concept human clinical trials

The members’ collective expertise serves as a rich resource for the pursuit of interdisciplinary approaches to fundamental questions about the immunobiology and immunotherapy of cancer. Members include national leaders in basic immunology, tumor immunobiology and translational immunotherapy.
