Mechanisms that inhibit anti-tumour immunity in melanoma patients

Project Description

The aim of this project is to better understand the complex interactions between cancer cells and cells of the immune system. We hope that this understanding will lead to new treatments for cancer which use the patient’s own immune system to attack the cancerous cells.
