Ruth Scherz, from the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, aims to elucidate the mechanisms by which tumors reprogram their local environments. Her goal is to provide a deeper understanding of how tumors develop into systemic malignancies, predict which tumors are more likely to do so, and design therapeutic strategies to overcome these malignancies by targeting genetically stable elements in the tumor microenvironment. She has been invited by Ben Lehner (CRG).
