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

May 30 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

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.
