Register for this webinar entitled - Cytokines and Receptors in Cancer Immunotherapy

Cytokines are a key area of interest in cancer immunotherapy. Interleukin (IL)-2, IL-4, IL-7, IL-9, IL-15, and IL-21 comprise a cytokine family based on sharing a receptor component, the common cytokine receptor γ chain (γc). γc family cytokines generally activate three major signaling pathways (PI3K-Akt, RAS-MAPK, and JAK-STAT) to regulate the development, survival, proliferation, differentiation, and function of cells in both the innate and adaptive immune systems. Recently, designer cytokines for γc family have shown significant therapeutic potential in cancer, allergy, immunodeficiency, and autoimmunity. This webinar will discuss the critical biological roles and therapeutic applications of γc cytokines and receptors.

Learning Objectives:

  • General overview of cytokines
  • Introduction to the common gamma chain cytokine family
  • Role of common gamma chain cytokines in cancer immunotherapy
  • Future developments of common gamma chain cytokines in cancer immunotherapy
