Paul Sondel, MD, PhD, will take part in a U01 grant recently awarded to Principal Investigators Zachary Morris, MD, PhD, (Human Oncology) and Jamey Weichert, PhD, (Radiology). Their grant, entitled, "Immunomodulation of the Tumor Microenvironment with Molecular Targeted Radiotherapy to Facilitate an Adaptive Anti-Tumor Immune Response to Combined Modality Immunotherapies," is part of the Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot Initiative through the National Institutes of Health/National Cancer Institute (NIH/NCI), and will provide ~$2.5 million to the UW over 5 years. Dr. Sondel's collaboration with the grant will help develop new approaches to improve the in situ vaccine effect of local radiation therapy by injecting irradiated tumor sites with specific immunotherapies.
