Re-programming the immune system

Professor Caetano Reis e Sousa and his team are investigating how our immune system detects and responds to infection.

Using this knowledge, Professor Reis e Sousa is developing ways to harness the power of the immune system to target and destroy cancer cells. This exciting field of immunotherapy research has great potential to deliver more effective cancer treatments in the future.
