"‘Mobilizing the troops’ – how exercise can help benefit cancer patients and improve immune cell therapeutics"
Richard Simpson, PhD
, Associate Professor in Nutritional Sciences, Pediatrics and Immunobiology, University of Arizona

Presentation Summary: Exercise evokes a profound and almost instantaneous redeployment of leukocytes between the blood compartment, lymphoid organs and peripheral tissues. This fundamental fight or flight response has been purported as a key mechanism by which exercise can help protect against cancer across the entire continuum of prevention, treatment, and survivorship. This talk will focus on the role of exercise and adrenergic receptor signaling on immune cell mobilization, and how this ‘good’ stress response can be harnessed to improve stem cell transplantation and immune cell therapeutics.
