CCSB Seminar: High-content imaging of tumor-stromal cell dynamics in cancer

Clark Center - S360 : Stanford, CA

Abstract
Cancer is a complex adaptive system orchestrated by the interactions between tumor cells and their microenvironment. In particular, cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs), the dominant cellular component of the tumor stroma, are often associated with a poor prognosis and play an important role in tumor progression for a number of cancers. While significant literature has highlighted the influence of CAFs on cancer cell phenotypes including tumor cell proliferation and invasion, the role of CAF heterogeneity on treatment response remains largely understudied.
