Laurence Zitvogel Biography
Laurence Zitvogel is an expert in the field of cancer immunology and immunotherapy. She brought together basic and translational research, including the design of cancer therapies through combined animal studies and Phase I/II patient trials. Her expertise is mainly dendritic cell and innate effector biology and relevance during tumour development as well as exosome-based vaccine designs. She pioneered the concept of immunogenic cell death and showed that chemotherapy, radiotherapy and inhibitors of tyrosine kinase mediate their tumoricidal activity, at least partly through the immune system. Her team recently discovered the critical role and impact of gut microbiota in cancer immunosurveillance and therapies.
