The new method, which proposes to adapt the immune system to cancer and other autoimmune diseases, today was introduced to Santiago de Chile by a prominent Chilean specialist.
Fabiola Osorio, Director of Immunology and Cell Stress Laboratory, Institute of Biomedical Sciences, University of Chile, is the author of this line of work, which consists of mechanisms for understanding and detecting the immune system to respond to infections and cancer
For this purpose, an engineer in the field of Molecular Biotechnology and a physician at the University of London College illuminates sensors that have to regulate their cells, monitor their energy levels and synthesize proteins.
With this data, Osorio hopes to create a vaccine against cancer and personalized medicines for those suffering from the above-mentioned diseases, for which he is making progress in monitoring experimental models involving human cells.
"For years, the immune system has been studied from a traditional point of view, but my work has allowed us to offer a new perspective that can lead to an unprecedented solution, and I am convinced that we are building a history of creating a new field of immunology," Osorio said.
Her work drew the attention of the scientific community, as it is the only Chilean specialist whose laboratory is funded by a joint initiative of several international organizations to support outstanding scientists from non-G8 countries.
