Molecular 'Magnets' Could Improve Cancer Immunotherapies

A mouse tumour (grey/white areas) being infiltrated by cDC1 (yellow cells) that exited from blood vessels (blue). Red and green identify other immune cells. Infiltration by cDC1 triggers anti-cancer immune responses; this tumour will eventually be rejected by the mouse's immune system.
