Unlocking the Potential of Immunotherapies for NF2 – May 22nd 2023
This webinar will cover the limited treatment options available for individuals with NF2-SWN and the need for novel therapeutic targets. The speaker will discuss their research on the immunological pathways of NF2-SWN tumors using innovative imaging techniques and how immunotherapies may reduce tumor growth in patients. The goal is to provide insight into potential new treatments for the improvement of NF2-SWN patient lives.
NF2 Drug Development Update: Bacteria-Mediated Immunotherapy – January 14th 2023
We held a webinar on the topic of “NF2 Drug Development Update: Bacteria-Mediated Immunotherapy”. It took place virtually on Saturday, January 14th, 2023 at 11:00 am ET over Zoom.
NF2 BioSolutions funded the preclinical research of Dr. Brenner and Dr. Mekalanos and it led to the creation of the biotech Mulberry Biotherapeutics. NF2 BioSolutions is supporting MulberryBio to make sure they will succeed in establishing a clinical trial and developing a drug for NF2 patients and patients suffering from sporadic Schwannomas.

On Tuesday, November 29th we are fundraising to benefit Dr. Jianbing Zhou’s project at Yale. We hope to reach the goal of $100,000 in order to jumpstart a new project in this lab. Don’t miss out on our Giving Tuesday webinar where we will go over updates on the research initiatives we are supporting plus Dr. Zhou’s new project! Register here.
Immunotherapy: Adoptive Cell Therapy with Tumor-Infiltrating Lymphocytes – February 28th, 2022
Monday 28th of February is Rare Disease Day, and NF2 Biosolutions will raise funds to sponsor a new approach for tackling Neurofibromatosis type 2. This approach is called Adoptive Cell Therapy with Tumor-Infiltrating Lymphocytes, it is a type of novel immunotherapy that has been used and it’s effective in other cancers. On Monday we will also hold a webinar where Dr. Claire O’Leary will explain the objective of this project and how immunotherapy could be the answer to NF2 mutations.
