Checkpoint inhibitors targeting the PD1 pathway represent one of the most encouraging new therapeutics for cancers. However, most cancer patients do not respond to PD1 pathway inhibitors. Therefore, there is a strong unmet need to improve the efficacy of PD1 pathway inhibitors or to develop drugs targeting new immune checkpoint regulators.

In this talk, Dr. Chen will describe two classes of new immune checkpoint regulators called c-Rel and TIPE2, and discuss about their mechanisms of actions in treating cancers.
