IEEE-OC EMBS: Challenges and Novel Approaches in Brain Cancer

Share

Dr. Daniela Bota will talk about the Challenges and Novel Approaches in Brain cancer

Dr. Bota attended medical school in Bucharest then moved to California where she earned a PhD in molecular biology at the University of Southern California. She also trained as a neurologist and found herself drawn to patients who were fighting brain cancer. Dr. Daniela Bota is leading a phase 2 clinical trial of a glioblastoma vaccine made with white blood cells and protein antigens extracted from the patient's tumor. The vaccine — made with the patient’s own activated white blood cells—is injected into the patient to help the immune system recognize and attack remaining cancer cells.
