At the Radiotherapy and oncolmmunology lab (department of Radiation Oncology) approximately 25 researchers aim at better understanding cellular interactions in the tumor microenvironment using imaging, molecular-, cell biological- and immunological- techniques in relation to cancer therapies, especially radiotherapy. The interplay between tumor cells, fibroblasts and immune cells is studied within the tumor microenvironment (TME) and modulation of the TME on the efficacy of treatment. An important activity of the department is the translation of basic research into clinical application.Research Institutes
