The Delgoffe lab is psyched to be attending and presenting at the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) 32nd Annual Meeting in National Harbor, MD!

Two of our lab members are giving talks at SITC 2017 on Friday in Concurrent Session 108: Energizing Immune Cell Metabolism in Cancer:

  • Greg M. Delgoffe @ 5:45 – 6:05p - Metabolic Changes in Tumor Microenvironment
  • McLane (Mac) Watson @ 6:20 – 6:35p - Lactic Acid as a Mediator of Metabolic Symbiosis Between Regulatory T cells and the Tumor Microenvironment

Three additional lab members are presenting during the poster sessions:

  • Ashley Menk - 4-1BB costimulation enables PD-1 blockade therapy by inducing T cell mitochondrial function and biogenesis - P152
  • Dayana Rivadeneira - A novel metabolic therapeutic that harnesses the anti-tumor immune responseP484
  • Nicole Scharping - Immunometabolic requirements for T cell exhaustionP156

Come check out our research to learn more about T cell metabolism and immunotherapy in the tumor microenvironment!
