Research Topic A
The immune system has the potential of eradicate cancer, nevertheless the establishment of an immunosuppressive environment at the tumor site often dampens anti-tumor immunity. Our research aims to deconvolute immunosuppressive interactions in the context of tumor microenvironment thanks to the analysis of experimental models and patient samples. These studies will allow to discover novel prognostic biomarkers to better select patient therapy, and to identify novel therapeutic targets.
