Scientific Interest

I am currently focusing on the myeloid compartment in Glioblastoma, the most aggressive brain tumour, in order to identify novel targets that could be used to induce anti-tumoral responses in tumour-associated microglia/macrophages, which are skwed by the tumor into tumour-supportive cells.
