About awarded research
In the presentation I introduced my research about applying nano drug delivery system to improve cancer immunotherapy. Briefly, I invented a new nanocarrier formulation with can precisly deliver cytokine proteins into tumor to enhance the intratumoral immunity and get a better immunotherapy outcome. This method has potential to be applied in clinic to improve the anti-cancer treatment.
Your impression & future plan
I am deeply honored to receive this award, and I sincerely thank Associate Prof. Horacio Cabral and Prof. Kazunori Kataoka for their instructions on this research project. I also appreciate the support from SPRING-GX, The University of Tokyo, which enables me to pursue the research in my field of interest. I will continue to maintain a positive attitude towards study and research, and I hope to see my research outcomes translated into clinical applications to benefit more cancer patients in the future.
