Résumé | Jonathan Bramson holds a Tier I Canada Research Chair in Translational Cancer Immunology and the John Bienenstock Chair in Molecular Medicine. The Bramson lab is focused on developing methods to direct cancer patients’ immune systems to attack their tumors. Currently, the lab is using synthetic biology methods to direct T cells against discrete tumor targets. Of note, the Bramson lab has created a novel chimeric receptor, known as the T cell antigen coupling (TAC) receptor, that displays enhanced anti-tumor activity and reduced toxicity relative to conventional CARs in pre-clinical models.
