Photoimmunotherapy – shedding a new light on glioblastoma treatment

Dr. Malgorzata Kucinska in the lab

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), a grade IV brain tumor, is the most common malignant primary brain cancer in adults. Patients with GBM have a poor prognosis following standard therapy, with a 5-year survival rate of only 3-5%. Although novel therapies against GBM have been tested, the standard care has remained unaltered for over 15 years.

Dr. Malgorzata Kucinska used a Travelling Fellowship from Disease Models & Mechanisms to travel from Poznan University of Medical Sciences in Poland to investigate a possible GBM treatment with Dr. Gabriela Kramer-Marek’s lab at The Institute of Cancer Research in the UK.
