Fahrer Group - Immunology

Fahrer lab: Aude, Tina, Erin

The Group 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.

Highlights

Aude Fahrer

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.  

Aude Fahrer, putting cancer on trial

Sometimes what we’re looking for is right in front of us all along. Dr Aude Fahrer knows this feeling. The only difference is that she has been searching for something far more important than the car keys.
