About the Jean Hausser Lab

The field of cancer has blossomed during the last decade, thanks to advances in genome technology and to successful application of fundamental insights from immunology to the clinic. Cancer genomics studies have revealed how tumors differ in their molecular make-up. These differences can explain why different tumors respond to different drugs, and suggest how to personalize therapy. Decades of immunology research have revealed how the immune system protects the organism against cancer and explored the molecular signals that coordinate immune response. These fundamental insights are now starting to bear fruit in the clinic in the form of immunotherapy.
