Tumor Immunology in Breast Cancer

Prof. Dr. Marcus Schmidt (Senior) and Dr. Anne-Sophie Heimes (Junior) received the innovation award "Junior meets Senior" of the German Society of Senology for their collaboration in the field of tumor immunology in early breast cancer.

Prof. Schmidt's research group was able to show for the first time that an increased number of immune cells of the humoral immune system is associated with a more favorable prognosis in patients with early and fast-growing breast cancer (read more (Pdf , 297,4 KB)).
