October 15, 2012

University of California, San Diego alumnus Bruce Beutler, M.D., will return to his alma mater Nov. 8 to speak about his experiences as a 2011 Nobel laureate in Physiology or Medicine.

Researchers Say to Conquer Cancer You Need to Stop It Before It Becomes Cancer

September 16, 2016

In a Perspective piece published this week in PNAS, cancer researchers from across the country, including faculty at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center, write that a greater emphasis on immune-based prevention should be central to new efforts like the federal Cancer Moonshot program,…

Cancer Cells Co-opt Immune Response to Escape Destruction

December 18, 2012

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine report that tumor cells use stress signals to subvert responding immune cells, exploiting them to actually boost conditions beneficial to cancer growth.

Is the Next Big Step in Cancer Therapy Personalized Vaccines?

October 12, 2018

Tamara Strauss has been living with high-grade, stage IV pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer for more than three years. Current treatments, although effective for her, are highly toxic. Tamara enrolled in a first-of-its-kind, pilot study at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health to test a personalized vaccine using her unique…

T Cells Can Activate Themselves to Fight Tumors

May 8, 2023

UC San Diego scientists find an auto-signaling mechanism driving the T cell anti-tumor response; findings may inspire new cancer therapeutics and biomarkers.

Blocking Tumor-Induced Inflammation Impacts Cancer Development

October 3, 2012

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine report the discovery of microbial–dependent mechanisms through which some cancers mount an inflammatory response that fuels their development and growth.

Tissue-Specific Immunity May Be the Future, if We Can First Learn its Rules

December 28, 2022

UC San Diego study reveals critical insights into the complex biology of tissue-specific T cells, paving the way for a new branch of precision therapeutics in immunity, autoimmunity, and cancer.

Flesh-Eating Infections in Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients Spur New Discovery

August 19, 2016

…Medicine researchers. Their study, published August 19 in Science Immunology, also uncovers a critical new role for IL-1beta as the body’s independent early warning system for bacterial infections.

To Ward Off Aging, Stem Cells Must Take Out the Trash

March 21, 2023

UC San Diego researchers find stem cells use a surprising system for discarding misfolded proteins. This unique pathway could be the key to maintaining long-term health and preventing age-related blood and immune disorders.
