Tumor-host Interactions

by Richard Mitchell, MD, PhD

A tumor’s interaction with its microenvironment, including the stromal and immune components, plays a crucial role in the development of malignancy. Tumor cells often carry mutations that allow them to recruit the microenvironment to work for them, creating a favorable environment for growth and protecting the tumor from host responses. In this course, we explore the relationship between tumors and their hosts.
