Metastatic disease is the leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide counting for 90% of cancer related deaths. In the last decade, myeloid derived suppressor cells moved closer into the focus of research due to their immunosuppressive involvement in cancer progression, pre-metastatic niche formation and metastasis. I focus on the elucidation of the migration patterns and homing dynamics of myeloid derived suppressor cells and their involvement in metastasis.
