Interferon (IFN) and pattern recognition receptor (PRR) signaling are important for immune activation and the effectiveness of cancer immunotherapies. However, these pathways can also have inhibitory roles due to entwined negative feedback mechanisms that can be exploited by tumors often after chronic stimulation. I will discuss our findings on how these opposing roles are regulated in cancer, how they can contribute to immunotherapy resistance, and approaches we are pursuing to mitigate the inhibitory effects of IFN /PRR signaling.
