Project: Understanding the immune microenvironment in brain tumours

Mantamadiotis group

Understanding the best immunotherapy which could be applied to a specific cancer type requires a deep understanding of the immunobiology of the tumour tissue. This project aims to understand the types and distribution of immune cells in brain tumour tissue and how the tumour microenvironment, including immune cells, contribute to oncogenesis. Unique brain cancer cell lines and brain tumour tissue from animal models and patients will be used to investigate the tumour microenvironment using state-of-the-art multiplex immunohistochemistry and computational analysis.
