Future directions in cancer treatment: focus on tumor microenvironment

Lieping Chen, MD, PhD of Yale School of Medicine, New Haven, CT discusses future directions in cancer treatment. Thanks to scientific discoveries like PD-1/PD-L1 researchers know what to look for, which is a significant shift in approach, from looking at a whole body to focus on tumor microenvironment. Prof. Chen expects exciting discoveries in the next 5 years, but points out that science requires a lot of work and takes time, and many molecular pathways are still to be discovered. Recorded at the 2016 National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Conference in Liverpool, UK.
