What is it?
Can our immune systems fight cancer? This is the question posed at this month’s Café Scientifique event at The Royal Society in London.
Cancer is made up of mutated versions of our own cells, making it hard for the immune system to recognise and attack. But what if we could re-educate our immune system to recognise and fight cancer? Recent research breakthroughs have shown we can do just that, but there are still challenges to overcome.
Café Scientifique is an informal public event with a short talk, followed by discussion. This month’s event will welcome Royal Society Research Fellow and Immunologist Professor Benjamin Wilcox, and Dr Karin Straathof from the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health.
