Understanding Immune Cell Function in Cancer

Explore how scientists characterize immune cell functional behavior in response to cancer, and how they harness this information for therapeutic purposes.




Many anticancer therapeutic approaches seek to harness and augment existing mechanisms to combat tumor growth. Decades of research, including genomic and proteomic analyses, show that immune-cancer interactions are highly diverse and deeply complex. Understanding how cellular functional phenotypes affect cancer progression is important for developing effective therapeutics.
