Collaborative Projects* (PO1s, SPORES, Generic listing of current projects)
Research collaborations with investigators in other DF/HCC programs are reflected in the participation of Cancer Immunology Program Members in multiple SPORES, including:
Skin SPORE. Tom Kupper: functional and genomic analysis of cutaneous T cell lymphoma. David Avigan, Frank Haluska, Stephen Balk, and James Meir: dendritic cell vaccines. Michael Atkins: mechanisms of tumor response and resistance to cytokines and biochemotherapy.
Multiple Myeloma SPORE. Ken Anderson, Hidde Ploegh, and Laurie Glimcher: proteasome inhibition and therapeutic activity in myeloma. Don Kufe and Paul Eder: MUC-1 as a therapeutic target.
Renal SPORE. Michael Atkins and James Mier: immune correlates of prognosis and responsiveness to therapy. David Avigan and Donald Kufe: dendritic cell/tumor fusions in conjunction with IL-12 for renal cancer.
Ovarian SPORE. David Avigan and Donald Kufe: dendritic cell/tumor fusions
