The immune system plays a dual role during neoplastic progression. It can suppress tumor growth by eliminating cancer cells, and also promote neoplastic expansion by either selecting for tumor cells that are fitter to survive in an immunocompetent host or by establishing the right conditions within the tumor microenvironment. 

This is a dissertation defense, hosted by advisors Carlos Castillo-Chavez, Ph.D, and Karen S. Anderson, M.D., Ph.D.; and committee members Joseph N. Blattman, Ph.D.; Melissa A. Wilson Sayres, Ph.D.; and Carlo C. Maley, Ph.D.
