Dr. Zhang will discuss the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie tumor exosome-mediated immune suppression through induction of myeloid suppressor cells in a TLR-dependent manner. He will also describe his progress toward developing an edible plant-derived nanovector as a drug/miRNA delivery vehicle for targeting inflammatory (microglia) and tumor cells in mice, including in brain tumors.
