In this group we study how metastatic processes depend on suppression of the immune response and how the immune system actually instead promotes breast cancer metastasis. The research has a strong translational character with clinical collaborations and primary material as base in all projects. The focus is on immunosuppressive cell populations and metastatic processes in breast cancer. Understanding the immune suppression in breast cancer patients may lead to novel treatment modalities aimed to hinder this phenomenon which would eventually encumber the devastating progression of breast cancer metastasis.
