Faculty Outstanding Research Output Award

19 Jan, 2024

Vincent, David and Dicky's paper published in the Journal of Hepatology has been awarded for the Faculty Outstanding Research Output Award.


The award-winning research project characterized tumors in precision mouse models with different genotypes into cold and hot tumor based on CD8+ T cell-infiltration level. Our study provides proof-of-concept evidence to show that hot tumors are responsive to anti-PD-1 treatment while cold tumors are more suitable for combined treatment with anti-PD-1 and sorafenib.

Well done and huge congratulations to all the co-authors of these exciting studies for the awards!
