"This image shows neoplastic prostate lobes from a mouse surrounded by reactive stroma (green).  We are interested in the microenvironment that follows progressing tumors and how that changes as treat the tumors with cancer specific T cells.  The stromal microenvironment plays important roles in the development of treatment resistant tumors. Visualizations like these help us define the stromal elements and their contribution to treatment resistance."
