Targeted Cancer Drugs and Immunotherapies in the Lab

An interview with biologist Eddie Wood

Shannon Parisotto, CSVP of Global Safety Assessment for Charles River, interviews Senior Research Director Eddie Wood on the state of research of targeted therapies and cancer immunotherapies. Immunotherapy involves supplementing or kick-starting a patient’s own immune system to fight disease, and the research has been promising. Targeted therapy involves using drugs or other substances to identify and attack specific types of cancer cells with less harm to normal cells. Listen now to learn about breakthroughs and obstacles in these fast-growing fields.
