Research Project: influence of mesenchymal stromal cells on new immunotherapeutics: implication of glycoproteins

Subject: study on the interactions between mesenchymal stromal cells and cancer cells (multiple myeloma cells). We will study the expression of glycoproteins on mesenchymal stromal cells and their influence on tumor development and new immunotherapeutics.

Laboratory: our laboratory studied in the past 10 years the interactions between myeloma cells and neighbouring cells and focused more recently on the development of new immunotherapeutic agents.
