Steinmetz Lab for Cancer Immunotherapies 

Cancer immunotherapy has undergone a revolution — now is the time to test the most innovative concepts: a plant virus-based cancer immunotherapy. Steinmetz Lab at UC San Diego is pushing to new frontiers in medicine by repurposing plant viruses as therapeutic approaches — the technology is validated by many published works and data show unprecedented efficacy not only in tumor models, but in successful treatment of pets diagnosed with cancer. Giving to this fund will help us make a leap toward human clinical trials.
