    Improving T cell homing to solid tumours

    Dr Iain Comerford

    This project aims to identify and test the role of novel molecules in controlling movement of cells of the immune system into solid tumours. Many cancers survive by preventing immune cells that are capable of killing cancer cells from entering the tumour mass. This project takes innovative new approaches to identify molecules that control this process. In addition, we have already identified a molecule involved in this process and will test how this limits immune cell entry into tumours.
