CD8 T cells play a major role in the defense against intracellular pathogens and cancers. Our research group studies the role of CD8 T cells in both acute and chronic infections and in in vivo models of solid cancers. A special focus is put on the development of novel vaccines for the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers.
