Liver Cancer PhD Student
Ritu Shrestha has been a cancer research volunteer in our liver cancer unit since June 2016. She commenced her PhD as part of GMRF’s scholarship program in July 2017.
Ritu’s research focuses on using immunotherapy strategies to fight primary liver cancer. This will involve identifying certain proteins that stops the immune system from recognizing liver cancer cells. She is also examining novel ways to re-engange the immune system to directly target the cancer.
