Regenerative Medicine Today welcomes Dr. Vera Donnenberg, Assistant Professor of Surgery and Pharmaceutical Science at the University of Pittsburgh.
A persistent problem in cancer treatment is cancer recurrence after apparently successful therapy which in turn is mediated by a dormant and protected cancer stem/progenitor like cell. Her lab is focused on approaches that can be translated into and understanding the biologic basis for treatment failure and identifying new immunological therapeutic targets. She introduces the concept of a cancer vaccine to address these needs.
