Dr Gabrielle Bergers - University of Leuven, Leuven, Belgium

Dr Bergers talks to ecancer at the Cancer Research UK Brain Tumour Conference 2018 in London about the complex nature of the tumour microenvironment.

She also explains why starving a tumour is not a good form of treatment, and can in fact make it more aggressive.

Dr Bergers ends with how a specialised type of vessel called high endothelial venules, can really enhance the immunotherapeutic response.
