Maximizing interactions between cells of the innate immune system and cancer cells, in vitro and in vivo, using antibodies and related molecules to provide cancer selective recognition to the immune interaction. Research involves in vitro and in vivo studies in murine models and involves in vitro studies of human tissues as well as human clinical trials. A more recent focus involves genotyping for polymorphisms that influence NK function and correlating with clinical outcome in patients receiving immunotherapy.
