I am pleased to invite you at the next GIGA-Cancer seminar session that will take place on Friday October 13, 2017 at 12.30 am in the Auditorium Léon Fredericq (Giga Tower, Building B34, 5th floor).
Professor Gabriele BERGERS (VIB-KULeuven, Center for Cancer Biology) will give a talk entitled  "Vascular Immunomodulation in Cancer"
Gabriele Bergers obtained her PhD degree in the University of Vienne. Since 1994, she worked in the University of California-San Francisco where she obtained a position of professor since 2010. In 2016, she became group leader of the VIB-KU Leuven Center for Cancer Biology.
The lab of Gabriele Bergers conducts a comprehensive investigation that defines the dialogues of heterogeneous tumor cell subtypes, and the vasculature and immune cells in the distinct tumor vascular niches in response to standard as well as targeted therapies including antiangiogenic and immune-modulating therapies.


The current topics of her group are :
- Understanding mechanistic underpinnings of tumor-microenvironment-governed resistance with a focus on tumor cell heterogeneity
- Tumor vascular modulation to enhance therapeutic efficacy
- Explore new avenues to create enduring immune-stimulating effects in primary tumors and metastatic lesions

Best regards,

Prof. Agnès NOEL
Head of GIGA-Cancer
