NSU Global Research Team Tackles Pediatric Cancer

Researchers around the world are investigating ways to effectively train immune cells, including natural killer (NK) cells, to target specific types of tumors. NK cells represent a form of immunotherapy that is potentially a less toxic and more effective way to combat tumor cells than current standard cancer treatment protocols, which heavily rely on chemotherapy and radiation. There is a lack of private research funding investment in this promising area of study due to the lag time involved in translating these discoveries from the bench to bedside. Academia is stepping up to fill this much-needed void . . .
