Title of the presentation:
Myeloid-derived suppressor cells in cancers
Vincenzo Bronte is currently Head of the Immunology Section in the Department of Pathology and Diagnostics of Verona University. He is full professor of Immunology in Verona University.
Prof. Bronte was awarded in 2007 by the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei (Rome, Italy) in 2008 by the Italian Foundation for Cancer Research for his oncology researchers. Prof. Bronte’s major achievements is the definition and molecular characterization of immunoregulatory cells, now called myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs), whose negative influence on antitumor immunity represents an obstacle to a successful immunotherapy of cancer. Current projects in the laboratory are further exploring the interplay between transformed cells and the surrounding stroma.
