Significant advances have been made in the field of cancer immunotherapy by orchestrating the body’s immune system to eradicate cancer cells. However, safety and efficacy concerns stemming from the systemic delivery of immunomodulatory compounds limits cancer immunotherapies expansion and application. In this context, immune modulatory biomaterials and nanoparticles presents a number of advantages, such as targeted modulation of immune cells, enhanced clinical outcomes, and reduced adverse events, which may result in enhanced cancer immunotherapies.
