Optogenetic Immunomodulation Reduces Cancer Tumor Size, Metastasis in Animal Model

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Optogenetics has been modified for an immunotherapeutic approach that aims to kill cancerous tumor cells. Neuroscientists have used light to stimulate neurons for years, said professor Yubin Zhou of Texas A&M University’s Health Science Center Institute of Biosciences & Technology. In neuroscience, optogenetics involves genetically engineering cells to produce proteins from light-sensitive microbes. The result is nerve cells that either send or stop sending nerve impulses when exposed to a particular wavelength of light. Unlike nerve cells, immune cells don't...Read full article
