Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre, University of Southampton. Southampton, UK

Christian Ottensmeier, from the University of Southampton, UK, works on the preclinical development and early phase clinical testing of strategies to induce anti-tumour immune responses in patients with solid tumours, mainly melanoma, head and neck and lung cancer. His group has three areas of investigation: Detailed evaluation of the molecular mechanisms of immunological antitumour responses and effects of immunological intervention in patients, assay development and validation, and finally mechanistic studies in murine models as well as human modelling of immune responses to vaccination for further preclinical cancer vaccine development. Their aim is to complete the loop back into the clinic. He has been invited by Edurne Arriola (IMIM).
