Dr Nicholas McGranahan - Crick Institute, London, UK

Dr Nicholas McGranahan talks with ecancertv at AACR 2016 about tumour heterogeneity and mutational markers for immunotherapy. 

Within tumours, mutations can give rise to varying gene expression that in turn effects the potential efficacy of a targeted treatment.

However, each mutation may in turn give rise to a presented peptide that could be recognised by a patients innate immunity.

Rather than the specific mutational drivers of cancer, Dr McGranahan reports on the targeting of these neoantigens as non-self markers, a highly personalised target for potential therapies.
