The cancer immunotherapy programme at IGP comprises nine research groups that employ complementary approaches to study the role of the immune system in cancer. We also apply various methods to induce an immune attack on cancer cells. The research within the programme is both preclinical and clinical in nature, with preclinical developments being translated into early phase clinical trials.
New immunotherapy approaches
There is a strong focus on developing and verifying novel immunotherapy approaches as well as understanding mechanisms behind resistance to immunotherapy. Pathological examinations focus on understanding the immune landscape and the role of different immune cells in various forms of cancer. The clinical research includes both First-in-Human clinical trials with immunotherapies developed at IGP, and larger multi-center clinical trials.
The research groups within the programme work closely together and have at the same time a broad and international network of collaborators.
