Fahrer Lab - Immunology

Fahrer lab: Aude, Tina, Erin

The Lab is focused on two main areas of research at the moment:

  1. A very simple and inexpensive cancer immunotherapy treatment I have come up with, involving a single injection of an immune stimulant into a tumour.
  2. A bioinformatics study looking for novel proteins in different genomes. We have just recently around 2000 novel proteins from humans and mice.

Our main areas of research at the moment include a very simple and inexpensive (and rather crazy!) cancer immunotherapy treatment I have come up with, involving a single injection of an immune stimulant into a tumour, and a bioinformatics study looking for novel proteins in different genomes.
