Cancer researcher Dr. Catherine Wu

Presented by
Catherine Wu, MD
Professor, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School
Chief, Division of Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapies
Institute Member, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard

Dr. Catherine Wu's lab focuses on how best to effectively mount human immune responses to recognize and eradicate cancer, with dedicated effort on the discovery and targeting of tumor antigens. A longstanding theme of her studies has been how best to launch immunotherapeutic efforts in a personalized fashion, initially through studies in the area of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), together with whole tumor cell vaccination, and more recently through the implementation of personal neoantigen-targeting cancer vaccines.


Co-sponsored by the UCLA CTSI, UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center and the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine Themes.
