When chronically stimulated, T cells can enter an exhausted state where they cease effector functions. This is especially important in cancer, where T cells function abnormally upon activation and can differentiate into a terminally dysfunctional state upon continued tumor exposure. In this webinar from The Scientist, Mary Philip and Benjamin Youngblood will discuss how T cell exhaustion is defined, its causes and drivers, and how it affects cell responses to immunotherapies.

Topics to be covered

  • T cell dysfunction and exhaustion in cancer
  • Using epigenetic mechanisms of T cell exhaustion to enhance immunotherapy
