Immunotherapy

Personalized Therapy

Welcome to Hu CIPT lab at UW-Madison! The ultimate goal of our laboratory is to leverage the delivery approach to address current clinical challenges and facilitate translational research by combining cell therapy, immunotherapy, and personalized therapy. Specifically, by adopting the concept of “CIPT”, we are getting inspiration from natural cells to design our delivery tools and particularly interested in engineering cells and cell derivatives as vehicles for delivery of small/macromolecules, proteins, and antibodies to treat a broad array of diseases, including cancer, infectious disease, and autoimmune disease. We are also leveraging the interaction between synthetic materials and immune cells to modulate the immune response in a controllable fashion. To advance personalized therapy, neoantigen-based vaccination and microbiota research will be emphasized in our lab to transform traditional “one-size-fits-all” treatment to precision medicine for each individual.
