Research description

We study the interaction between malignant B cells and cells of the microenvironment to understand signalling pathways mediating the generation of tumour supportive niches. These niches are particularly important for microenvironment-mediated drug resistance and contribute to disease relapse and clonal evolution. Results from our studies allow us to target tumour cells by alternative ways than killing the malignant cells themselves and are likely to be more successful due to the lack of genetic instability in the tumour microenvironment.
