Description

In recent years, the role of immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment in tumor progression and therapeutic resistance has been widely accepted and thus, a great deal of efforts made to identify molecular targets to either eliminate immunosuppression or revert it to anti-tumorigenic microenvironment. Our research aims to understand the molecular mechanism and functional significance of tumor induced MDSCs in the formation of immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment and pre-metastatic niche formation.

Dates and Times

Start: 4/29/2021 12:00 PM
End: 4/29/2021 1:00 PM

Objectives

  1. How some breast tumors induce the differentiation of myeloid cells into an immunosuppressive myeloid derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) or tumor associated neutrophils (TAN).
  2. The contribution of MDSCs in establishment of tumor microenvironment and pre-metastatic niches.
  3. Therapeutic utility of targeting MDSCs in preclinical settings.

Speakers

  • Dr. Karen Korkaya
    • Significance of Myeloid Cells in the Tumor Microenvironment and Pre-Metastatic Niche
