Webinar – Wolf H. Fridman – Shaping of anti-tumor immunity in the tumor microenvironment

Monday 25th July 2022 at Online Webinar

Tumors grow in a microenvironment in which malignant cells entertain intricated relations with stromal and immune cells Both T and B cell anti-tumor immunity are generated in Tertiary Lymphoid Structures adjacent to tumor beds. In situ generated immunity impacts patient’s prognosis and response to immunotherapy.

Presenter

Professor Wolf H. Fridman is Professor Emeritus of Immunology at Université Paris Cité, in Paris, France. His research focused on the analysis of the tumor microenvironment. Since 2005, his studies have changed the paradigm of host/cancer interactions by demonstrating that the ‘immune contexture”, taking in account the functionality, the location and the density of the immune infiltrate is the major prognostic factor for human cancers. He has recently demonstrated that Tertiary Lymphoid Structures (TLS), adjacent to tumor beds shape efficient T and B cell immunity, the later resulting in the production of anti-tumor antibodies that impact patient’s prognosis and response to immunotherapy. These findings open the way for novel immune-based tools for efficient prognosis and therapy of cancers.
