Stephen Beers, PhDProfessor of Immunology and Immunotherapy, Antibody and Vaccine Group, Centre for Cancer Immunology at University of Southampton
Stephen Beers joined the University of Southampton, Faculty of Medicine in 2002. He leads a research group within Cancer Sciences studying antibody drugs and their mechanisms of action. The group’s research is currently focussed on two main areas: 1) the mechanisms of action of immunomodulatory mAb, and 2) how the tumour microenvironment affects antibody effector function and how this might be manipulated to enhance patient outcomes. Their work utilises a portfolio of complimentary models incorporating in vitro 3D modelling, appropriate in vivo model systems and primary clinical material.
