A Bad Influence: The Interplay Between Tumor & Immune Cells

Cells live in complex communities called microenvironments, where many different types of cells interact with one another. In cancer, the microenvironment is a place where cancer cells and healthy cells interact. Oliver's study outlines a lung tumors' influence on immune cells in its microenvironment. Represented in illustration A is a lung tumor. The lung tumor's microenvironment includes many types of healthy cells and cancer cells, in illustration B. Within this microenvironment, lung cancer cells influence immune cells to develop behaviors that support the cancer cell as reflected in illustration C. Credit: Trudy Oliver Lab
