Live from the Lab with Sonia Sharma, Ph.D., presenting Building Better Cancer Immunotherapy

On June 8, 2021, LJI’s Sonia Sharma, Ph.D., Associate Professor of the Institute’s Center for Cancer Immunotherapy and Center for Autoimmunity and Inflammation, presented her novel research which is advancing more effective cancer immunotherapies. Dr. Sharma’s work integrates cutting-edge genetics, biochemistry, and cell biology, as well as computational and translational approaches to define the key genetic mechanisms regulating cellular innate immunity, to determine how they impact human health and disease. In this Live from the Lab discussion, Dr. Sharma discussed some advances in therapies and she shared how her research with her colleagues in cancer immunotherapies supports the Institute’s overarching goal – achieving Life Without Disease®.
