Meet Three Women in Science Championing Myeloma Cures and Care

Annamaria Gulla, MD, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, is an LLS Career Development Program Fellow. With support from LLS, Dr. Gulla is working to improve outcomes for multiple myeloma patients through the power of immunotherapy. Immunotherapy – harnessing the immune system to fight cancer – has become a mainstay in cancer treatment. One promising approach centers on the evidence that cancer cells dying from specific treatment can be recognized by the patient’s own immune system, triggering an immune response against the disease. Dr. Gulla aims to characterize the molecular mechanisms behind this process – called immunogenic cell death – in multiple myeloma.
