The goal of our lab is to understand the dynamics of the tumor microenvironment using systems oncology approaches.

A key event in tumor progression is the establishment of an immunosuppressive microenvironment that prevents the immune system from recognizing and attacking the tumor cells. Using single-cell imaging, advanced computational analyses, and functional assays in tumor organoids, we aim to shed light into the dynamic immune-regulatory networks in the tumor microenvironment. We focus on the goal of developing prognostic and predictive biomarkers, and new therapeutic approaches to improve the treatment and survival of cancer patients.

We are hiring!

At the moment we are looking for a computational PhD student and a postdoc to work on image analysis and single-cell profiling.
