Surveillance Gaps: How Cancer Arises

Researchers study the mechanisms behind cancer cell immune evasion.

Scientists strive to combat cancer by employing the immune system; however, some cancer cells avoid attack. As a result, many patients treated with immunotherapies experience tumor regrowth after initial treatment successes. Researchers explore the different cellular mechanisms that lead to immune system evasion to develop better therapies with lasting effects.
