Nano-Medical System Laboratory
Professor Yong Taik Lim
- In the field of chemotherapy, anticancer immunotherapy technology which uses the patient's own immune system as a new technology which can not be treated by conventional chemotherapy or radiation therapy or which can minimize side effects, is receiving attention as a next-generation chemotherapy. However, the complex immune network in the body creates a variety of immune tolerance / suppression environments, and the current anti-cancer immunotherapy efficiency is still very low.
