Daniela Santoli, Wistar Institute
Daniela Santoli, a professor in the Immunology
Program at The Wistar Institute and member of Penn's
Cancer Center and Graduate Immunology Group, died on
January 23, of ovarian cancer at the age of 56.
earning her Ph.D. at the University of Rome, Dr. Santoli
was recruited as a postdoctoral fellow to The Wistar
Institute in 1972 by Dr. Hilary Koprowski, Wistar's former
director. Her initial research at Wistar was on
the virological aspects of multiple sclerosis and later
the immunology of this disease. Her research evolved
over time to target cancer and the defenses mounted against
it by the immune system. Her passion and the focus of
her research over the past 15 years involved using transplanted
TALL-104 immune cells to treat a variety of cancers.
This work was carried out with colleagues Drs. Sophie
Visonneau and Alessandra Cesano, both of whom trained
in her laboratory. The team discovered that TALL-104
cells had a remarkable ability to recognize and selectively
kill cancer cells in animals, and much of her recent
work focused on developing ways to apply this system
to human cancers. The therapy has been shown to have
potential applications against many kinds of human cancers,
with its greatest promise appearing to rest in killing
off cancer cells that remain after surgery or chemotherapy.
Human clinical trials of TALL-104 cells are currently
under way in Europe.
Louise C. Showe, an associate professor in Wistar's Molecular
and Cellular Oncogenesis Program, and a long-time colleague
said, "Dr. Santoli was a valued colleague at Wistar for
more than 30 years. Her whole scientific career took
place here, from post-doctoral fellow to Wistar professor."
was also deeply involved with investigators at Penn on
developing the clinical applications of TALL-104 cells.

and former professor and director of The Wistar Institute,
whom she met at Wistar and married in 1979. She is also
survived by their three daughters Stefania, Gabriella,
and Julia; her parents, Dr. and Mrs. Giulio Santoli of
Rome, Italy; and her siblings Mariella, Giovanna, and
Pasquale, who also reside in Italy.
