Dr. Anahid Jewett is a woman on a mission to find a cure for cancer. She is a Professor and Director of Tumor Immunology Laboratory and she is also a member of the UCLA Tumor Immunology subgroup, among others. For the past 26 years, Dr. Jewett has dedicated her life to figuring out why cancer stem cells (CSCs) are able to survive in patients. She believes the key is to focus on natural killer cells or NK cells, which are known to kill many different types of CSCs, including oral, pancreatic, lung, breast, glioblastoma, and melanoma tumors. To test whether NK cells could help minimize pancreatic cancer tumors, Dr. Jewett and her team developed a humanized mouse model with an intact human immune system. On this episode, she's discussing the available therapies, what her research is showing, and where we are in finding a cure.
