Our mission is to improve the treatment and prolong the survival of cancer patients. Using preclinical cancer models and patient-derived material we aim to decipher the complex interactions between immune cells and cancer cells to identify novel druggable targets. Our current research focuses on understanding the importance of activating receptors in anti-cancer immune responses.
