“Aging, IDO1, and glioblastoma (GBM) in adults: reversing the failure of immunotherapy to improve survival against GBM”
We are excited to announce Derek Wainwright’s lecture today at 3:00 pm in Holden Auditorium. Derek is currently an assistant professor at Northwestern where is lab is working at the intersection of aging, cancer and the immune system in glioblastoma. Derek is a highly dynamic speaker who will discuss his group’s efforts to understand how an aging brain impacts a person’s ability to respond to therapy (chemo and immune). Derek’s group has found, not surprisingly, that there are drastic differences in the brains of younger patients (and mice) compared to older but the mechanisms that drive these differences are a bit surprising.
Hosts: James Fitzpatrick and Sheila Stewart (WashU Cell Biology & Physiology)
