Limited Capacity filling up

Changing the way the immune system operates in illnesses, such as cancer, has the possibility of revolutionizing the way therapies are given. Immunoengineering, the field of manipulating the immune response through engineering principles, is capable of doing this through designing delivery systems and techniques that can overcome physiological and immunological barriers. I will give an overview of this field, showing its potential impact as well as show you my published work in Biomaterials as a template of how to use engineering principles to solve biological problems.
