davila research lab

The Davila Lab aims to understand the cellular and molecular signals that promote the generation of potent and long-lasting tumor-specific T cell responses. Early preclinical studies demonstrated thatformulating vaccines to include toll like receptor agonists together with peptides representing tumor antigens induced potent CD8 cytotoxic T cell responses and were effective at treating tumors in a prophylactic and therapeutic setting. We continue to exploit the T cell’s ability to recognize and destroy tumors.
