Invited chapters from world-renowned researchers and clinicians shed light on recent steps forward in immunotherapeutic and preventive approaches for future cancer vaccines in this Annals volume.
With ten million persons afflicted each year, no one is entirely immune to cancer and its devastating effects on individuals and families. But recent advances in the development of cancer vaccines—either as therapeutic agents or as preventative measures—are hopeful indicators of progress in this field. This volume comprises invited chapters from world-renowned researchers and clinicians that shed light on recent steps forward in immunotherapeutic and preventive approaches for future cancer vaccines.
NYAS spoke with volume coeditor Olivera Finn about recent progress in the field during the 6th International Cancer Vaccines Symposium. See the video interview here.
