Dr Marco Gerlinger

Dr Marco Gerlinger develops new tools to detect and track the evolution of cancer cells and of their microenvironment and better therapies which prevent the evolution of drug resistance. He holds an Honorary Consultant Medical Oncologist position at The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, where he treats patients with gastro-intestinal cancers. Based on the research in his lab, he performs clinical trials of novel immunotherapies that aim to leverage the immune system to attack cancer cells.
