The Future of Immunotherapy: Treatments benefiting all cancer patients

It’s not an overstatement to say that immunotherapy—an approach that uses our own immune system to kill a tumor—has revolutionized the treatment of cancer. Doctors continue to report incredible results, including tough-to-treat tumors seemingly melting away. However, the treatment doesn’t work for everyone, and even if it does work initially, it often stops working as time goes on. Jennifer Hope, Ph.D., a postdoctoral researcher in the Bradley lab at Sanford Burnham Prebys, is working to find ways to make cancer immunotherapy work for more people.

The lecture will be followed by the special screening of Flight of the Butterflies at noon.


Senior Mondays are the first Monday of each Month.

  • Lecture: 10:30 am
  • Film: noon
  • Price: $10.00

If you're 65+ get together with other Torrey Piners for Senior Monday at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park. The entrance fee of only $10.00 includes a lecture, all current exhibits, and an IMAX movie.

The lectures begin at 10:30 AM in the Heikoff Dome Theater. Tickets are required to attend the lecture and can be requested at the Ticket Counter. Lecture space is limited, and lectures often sell out. Visitors are encouraged to stay to enjoy the galleries and special senior discounts in Galileo's Cafe and the North Star Science Store. Fleet's doors will open at 9:30 a.m. on the first Monday each month to get Senior Monday started early.

Tickets are available through the Fleet website and at the ticket counter.

Note: The schedule is subject to change, so it's a good idea to check the Reuben H. Fleet Web site at http://www.rhfleet.org/events/senior-mondays. You will also find more information about the lectures, speakers and films there at the Web site.
