Dr Lisa Ebert - Supercharging the immune system to beat brain cancer
Dr Lisa Ebert discusses her brain cancer research which she presented at the NRF Researcher Presentations event on Wednesday 23 September 2020.
Dr Lisa Ebert is a Research Associate at the Centre for Cancer Biology - University of South Australia/SA Pathology. Here she is speaking at the NeuroSurgical Research Foundation's Annual Research presentations event, which was held on Wednesday 23 September 2020.
Her research is focused on supercharging the immune system to beat brain cancer.
"CAR-T cell therapy is a new type of cancer treatment based on ‘supercharging’ a patient’s own immune system. It has shown great success in the treatment of certain blood cancers, and our team is now adapting this approach for the treatment of adult and childhood brain cancer. I will present some highlights from our pre-clinical research program and give an overview of our upcoming clinical trials," Dr Ebert said.
