    About This Project

    Cancers send signals to escape the immune system, making immunotherapy ineffective. These signals can be delivered in packages called exosomes, which are detected in blood. We hypothesize that the contents of exosomes may help to predict which patients will respond to immunotherapy. This project seeks to develop a blood test to determine immunotherapy response in patients with advanced melanoma and to learn more about how cancer evades the immune system.
