Research focus

Immunogenic cell death in dying tumor cells can provide an immune response against tumor neo-antigens, whereby the tumor cell gets recognized and eliminated by immune cells. 
The lab of Peter Vandenabeele has a longstanding interest in the many ways how cell can die. Now we are focusing on different types of immunogenic cell death and how different cell death modalities can affect cross presentation.
