Cancer Therapeutics & Host Response

Cancer Therapeutics and Host Response members attend a meeting

The scientific objectives of the University of Florida Health Cancer Center (UFHCC) Cancer Therapeutics & Host Response (CTHR) Program are to advance understanding of interactions between tumor cells, immune cells and microbes that mediate tumor development and progression, to define mechanisms regulating host responses to tumor progression, and advance novel therapeutic treatments for patients with cancer that exploit these interactions. CTHR Program members support the principal scientific themes of: 1) applied studies manipulating host immune responses for cancer therapy; 2) studies to elucidate the interactions between the microbiome and host in shaping immunity and inflammation influencing cancer development and treatment; and 3) identification of new oncogenic targets and pathways, development of compounds to aid clinical development of new cancer therapies. By achieving a greater understanding of tumor, host and microbial interactions that govern treatment response and resistance, these themes aim to initially identify potential therapeutic strategies harnessing the immune system, manipulating the host microbiome, and targeting molecular cancer pathways, and then advance these strategies into both preclinical testing and into investigator-initiated clinical trials (IITs).

Aims

The goal of CTHR program development and future plans is to improve outcomes of the most common cancers in our catchment area, as outlined in the UFHCC strategic plan.
