In cooperation with the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics (MPIMG) the Schering Stiftung presents a public scientific lecture by this year’s Ernst Schering Prize laureate Professor Aviv Regev, PhD.
Tumors are complex cellular ecosystems, combining malignant and non-malignant cells through spatial, temporal and functional relations. Single-cell and spatial profiling has opened the way to create cell atlases of patient tumors and cancer models as roadmaps to understand how these ecosystems form and sustain tumors in patients, how they respond to therapies, and how resistance emerges. In this talk, Aviv Regev will show how she used these approaches to decipher cellular ecosystems in patient tumors, dissect the relation between genotype to phenotype in cancer, understand tumor progression and drug resistance, and identify new points for therapeutic interventions across the tumor ecosystem.
The lecture is aimed at a scientific audience.
