Immunology in Oxford

Vincenzo Cerundolo

Cancer immunotherapy


Professor Vincenzo Cerundolo is an immunologist based at the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine. With the aim of developing better treatment strategies for cancer patients, Professor Cerundolo is working to gain a better understanding of the cell-to-cell interplay required for optimal expansion and activation of tumour-specific T cell populations. Professor Cerundolo’s laboratory is divided into three complementary areas, including: the analysis of tumour-specific immune responses in melanoma patients and the role of the tumour micro-environment in hampering tumour-specific immune responses; the structural, kinetic and functional analyses of invariant NKT (iNKT) cell activation; and a clinical trial vaccine programme in melanoma patients.

Professor Cerundolo's group is part of the Radcliffe Department of Medicine
