Immunotherapy vs Cancer
Posted 11 December 2010 - 04:13 PM
Which brings me to the reason of my post. Before I meet and talk with my PI about this matter, I wanted to get an opinion from fellow scientists, from the majority of you who are much more experienced and wiser than me, some very general 'introductory' questions.
-How popular/accepted is immunotherapy against prostate cancer amongst the scientific academia? Has there been an upward trend in popularity for this method against prostate cancers or cancers in general?
-What potential downfalls come with studying immunotherapy against prostate cancer? (expenses? potential difficulty in experiments?)
- How realistic is it for my PI to accept my proposal? Is it bordering outside the lines of our research, into the 'experimental therapeutics' region? (our lab mostly deals with screening for drug compounds, esp. for the androgen-independent stage).
I greatly appreciate your advice/comments
