Stephen Beers, PhD, Professor of Immunology and Immunotherapy, Centre for Cancer Immunology, School of Cancer Sciences, University of Southampton
Stephen Beers is Professor of Immunology and Immunotherapy at the Centre for Cancer Immunology, University of Southampton. He leads a research group studying antibody drugs and their mechanisms of action. The group’s research is currently focussed on two main areas: 1) the mechanisms of action of immunomodulatory mAb, and 2) how the tumour microenvironment affects antibody therapy and how this might be manipulated to enhance patient outcomes. Their work utilises a portfolio of complimentary models incorporating in vitro 3D modelling, appropriate in vivo model systems and primary clinical material.

Appearances:



Festival of Biologics Day 1 @ 16:50

The impact of immune environment on checkpoint blockade

  • Antibody drug classes have different Fc requirements for optimal activity
  • The local immune environment can impact immune checkpoint blocker efficacy
  • Can a suboptimal environment be overcome to enhance responses?

Festival of Biologics Day 2 @ 15:20
