Erez Levanon, PhD

Bar-Ilan University

ICRF Project Grant Recipient

Erez Levanon, PhD of Bar-Ilan University, received an ICRF Acceleration Grant for his project entitled, “Inducing Neoantigens for Immunotherapy Through Splicing Modulation.” Acceleration Grants are intended to speed up our understanding of the biology underlying cancer and to provide new knowledge that will rapidly enhance the development of innovative therapeutics. This project involves improving responses to cancer immunotherapy, since not all patients exhibit a strong response. The research team will design molecules, predicted by computational analysis, that will force creation of new proteins within the tumor cells. These new proteins are predicted to help invoke a robust, anti-tumor, immune response.
