Cancer Therapeutics & Host Response

Cancer Therapeutics and Host Response members attend a meeting

The scientific objectives of the Cancer Therapeutics and Host Response (CTHR) research 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 to advance novel therapies that exploit these interactions. CTHR promotes frontier therapeutic research on microbiome-immunotherapy interactions, and microbial-derived metabolites influencing epithelial and immune cell function. The program develops and translates immunotherapy modalities such as dendritic cell and RNA-nanoparticle vaccines into first-in-human clinical trials. A group of medicinal chemists discover and develop new small molecule anti-cancer agents. CTHR thus develops a pipeline to advance preclinical-through-clinical evaluation of novel patient-specific therapies.

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.
