Research interest

My research focuses on improving immunotherapies by targeting the tumor microenvironment. The tumor mass is considered to be fairly heterogenous in terms of their cellular composition. Therefore targeting e.g. cancer-associated fibroblasts and their secretome could improve the efficacy of immune checkpoint inhibitors like anti-PD-L1 and anti-LAG-3. Furthermore I am interested in Optical Imaging, Positron Emission Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging to measure and monitor tumor hypoxia and pH.
