Influences of tumor microenvironments on infiltrating immune cells
Limin Zheng's Laboratory
Tumor progression is now recognized as the product of evolving cross talk between different cell types within the tumor and its stroma. Normal stroma is non-permissive for neoplastic progression, but cancer cells can modulate adjacent stroma to generate a supportive microenvironment. With the combination of clinical sample examination and the in vitro/in vivo study, Zheng’s Lab systematically investigate the influences of tumor microenvironments on infiltrating immune cells and how these "educated" cells promote tumor progression.
