Bacteria engineered as Trojan horse for cancer immunotherapy

The emerging field of synthetic biology—designing new biological components and systems—is revolutionizing medicine. Through the genetic programming of living cells, researchers are creating engineered systems that intelligently sense and respond to diverse environments, leading to more specific and effective solutions in comparison to current molecular-based therapeutics. At the same time, cancer immunotherapy—using the body’s immune defenses to fight cancer—has transformed […]
