THE SCOPE OF THE RESEARCH
The research objective of Dr. Alfaro’s team is to develop, using computational methods, a set of tools to support modulation of the patient’s immune system activity with the aim of increasing the effectiveness of applied therapies. The team’s principal scientific interest is to foster the development of new immuno-oncology strategies and to make them precisely tailored to patient groups. Once developed, the tools will be used in designing therapeutic vaccines to treat immune system dysfunctions such as autoimmune and oncologic diseases.
