UF Brain Cancer Researcher Awarded Research Grant

A UF assistant professor in the department of neurosurgery has been awarded a grant of $1.9 million from the National Institutes of Health.

The money awarded to Catherine Flores, the principal investigator in UF’s Brain Tumor Immunotherapy Program, is said to go toward developing an immunotherapy treatment against malignant brain tumors critical in children.

Cancer immunotherapy is a type of treatment designed to boost the body’s natural defenses and help the immune system fight off invasive cancer cells as if it were fighting a common cold, Flores said.
