Researcher Dr Réjean Lapointe
Dr Réjean Lapointe is developing a gel to improve immunotherapy.

Cancer immunotherapy teaches immune cells to attack tumours, but it only works if enough immune cells are delivered to the cancer site. Dr Réjean Lapointe and his team developed a gel to target and release cancer-fighting immune cells at just the right spot. Further developments could greatly benefit people with cancer.
