Exploring the millennia for clues about innate immunity takes a special team, and Bass has assembled a talented one. The team members hope to uncover new possibilities encoded in the innate immune system, especially those that might be latent but still workable. Bass and others have found that evolution has produced dramatic differences in the biochemical pathways powering the innate immune system. The team will also build new types of targeted immunotherapies based on the principles of innate immunity. Current immunotherapies, which harness a person’s own immune system to fight disease, target infections, autoimmune disorders, and cancer.
