In this research highlight, Dr. Provenzano discusses his work defining the barriers to effective anti-tumor immunity in poor prognosis cancers and engineering cell therapies to break them down, as well as why multiphoton microscopy is a critical tool in his research.
"Something that I’ve found really exciting is the applicability of the microscope in immune mechanobiology work."
