2015.10. Ghaith Bakdash receives a René Vogel travel grant

Ghaith Bakdash, theme Cancer development and immune defence received a 3200 EUR travel grant from the René Vogels Stichting to perform a work visit in the Human Dendritic Cell Laboratory, at the Institute of Cellular Medicine of Newcastle University in the UK.

The main focus of this visit will be the delineation of the origin of a myeloid immunesuppressive population that Dr. Bakdash showed to be increased in cancer patients. The outcomes of this project could provide potential therapeutic targets in cancer treatment.
