  • UNC Lineberger discovery would allow researchers to fine-tune activity of cancer-hunting immune cells

    One year ago - By UNC Healthcare

    Researchers led by UNC Lineberger's Gianpietro Dotti, MD, reported new findings about the regulation of co-stimulatory molecules that could be used to activate cancer-killing immune cells - chimeric antigen receptor T-cells, or CAR-T. The molecules could also be used to decrease the activity of these cells.
