Recent clinical trials have revealed new classes of immune-based cancer therapies that target key pathways of the immune and immune-interacting tumour microenvironment. Either alone or in combination with conventional chemotherapeutics, these interventions have led to unprecedented results in patients with previously untreatable advanced disease. The future development of this class of agents for the ~85% of cancer patients who do not respond to current immune therapies demands more complex ex vivo models in which to test new biotherapies.
The post holder will contribute expertise in applying a variety of approaches to the generation of ex vivo models to facilitate the development of novel immune-oncology treatments.
