Research interests

Our research team studies the use of oncolytic viruses for cancer immunotherapy.

More specifically, our research program includes 3 main facets:

  1. The use of oncolytic viruses as platforms for personalized anti-cancer vaccination
  2. The development of novel vaccination strategies using oncolytic viruses and bacteria
  3. The study of the role of the immunoproteasome for the immunotherapeutic activity of oncolytic viruses
