Radiation and Cancer Immunotherapy Theme (RCIT)

Radiation and Cancer Immunotherapy Theme:

 

A multidisciplinary team of BCCA-VIC radiation oncologists and immunologists from the Deeley Research Centre with the goal of developing a translational research program that will identify new, more effective therapies for the management of patients with prostate cancer. This group has been working together since 2001 and was identified as a VIRAD theme in 2010.

 

Key Projects:

  • Study how hormone ablation and radiation therapy affect the immune system

  • Understand the impact of the immune response in the control of prostate cancer

  • Identify immune modulators that can be integrated with standard therapies to improve the outcomes of patients with prostate cancer
