FOXP3, a protein that takes part in the development of regulatory T cells, is vital for the immune system in recognizing foreign from self cells. However, cancer as well as some autoimmune diseases take advantage of this to hide carcinogenic cells. Consequently, the aim of this research project is to work towards developing improvements for existing inhibitors for FOXP3.
