Name:
MSc. Bettina Weigelin 


Function:
Postdoc


Theme:
Cancer development and immune defense



Profile

My research interest is focused on understanding how cancer cells invade into healthy tissue and spread to distant organs and how anti-cancer immune responses are regulated within the complex tumor microenvironment. By monitoring the dynamic interplay of individual cancer and immune cells in live tumors using intravital multiphoton microscopy we study the mechanisms of anti-cancer immunotherapies and develop novel strategies to activate the immune system to target cancer growth and metastasis.
