Cancer is the 2nd most frequent cause of death in industrial countries. For some kinds of cancer the 5-year survival rate is still below 20% (e.g. lung cancer). Therefore there is a great need to develop new and improve existing therapies. My aim is to design "intelligent" drugs with improved pharmacokinetics to increase the anti-tumoural effect. Furthermore I want to exploit the mechanisms of the immune system to develop new strategies against cancer.
