IBG is happy to announce that Assoc. Prof. Duygu Sag and Assist. Prof. Gerhard Wingender have been awarded with grant support from the Horizon 2020 Marie Curie Actions RISE program of the European Commission.
This project is funded with 904.500€ for 4 years. Profs. Sag and Wingender join a large international research team from six research laboratories and three companies in five countries (Ireland, France, Switzerland, Greece and Turkey). Together with their international colleagues, they will investigate how established tumors can evade the immune system. In particular, the team will elucidate the role particular death receptors play in this process and how this can be modulated to improve the immune response against cancer.
