Strategy to enhance anti-tumour immune response

"The project will bring new knowledge and fundamental understanding of the biology of the interaction between immune cells and tumours, as well as provide new strategies for the treatment of neuroblastoma. Specifically, our recent evidence that copper drives immune protection in tumour and recent progress in developing drugs targeting copper homeostasis offer great promise for translating these discoveries to the clinic to improve the efficacy of immunotherapies."
