Remarks / more information:

OppenheimDr. Oppenheim is a leading expert on the role of cytokines inHost Defense and Repair. His research focuses on chemokines and chemokines mimics, called'Alarmins'which rapidly mobilize and activate innate as well as subsequent adaptive host immune defense mechanisms. Alarmins participate in the host response to cancer, and they can also potentially be used as immunoadjuvants in tumor vaccines. A second line of research focuses on theRole of Suppressive Immune Cells in Cancer.
