In the Wiemer lab, we are researching different ways in which the human immune system can be used in cancer therapy, such as manipulation of emerging immune checkpoints. Researchers in the lab come from diverse backgrounds, but share interests and expertise in molecular biology, immunology, drug delivery, and medicinal chemistry. As an academic research lab, our goals are two-fold: 1) to discover new bioactive molecules (chemicals AND biologics) which one day may become the next cancer therapy, and 2) to provide an outstanding training environment to students and position them to make the next big breakthrough in cancer therapy.
