Dr. Liu’s lab has a significant publication which will be featured on PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences), online on 8/30/16 at 3pm.

The article is entitled “Cd47-Sirpα interaction and IL-10 constrain inflammation-induced macrophage phagocytosis of healthy self-cells”. The paper describes for the first time how macrophages can be induced (directly) to phagocytose healthy/viable self-cells and mechanisms that control macrophage behavior. These findings provide the methodology for inducing macrophage-based cancer immunotherapy especially for cancers toward which therapeutic antibodies/reagents are not yet unavailable.  Please be sure to congratulate Dr. Liu and view her paper online at:  http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2016/08/29/1521069113 (copy paste link in browser)
