Alexandre Corthay and his PhD-student Astri Frafjord have studied the body's immune response towards human lung cancer, and developed a new method to identify and quantify which types of immune cells are present inside tumors. Data from this research will serve as a basis for designing the cellular content for the coming "tumor-on-a-chip".
