Intratumour microbiota (i.e. bacteria living inside tumour cells) is an emerging hallmark that has been clinically validated in many tumour types. You will study the functional roles of intratumour microbiota in drug response and tumour immune microenvironment. Once validated, this project will be the first demonstration of how intratumour bacteria alter tumour behaviours, paving the way for mechanism-directed clinical interventions.
