The research group “Tumor Stroma Interactions” was created in July 2015 as part of the Laboratory of Experimental Cancer Research within the Department of Oncology.


Hematologic malignancies are the primary focus of our research, combining both fundamental and translational  research in order to understand the complexity of the tumor microenvironment and develop new innovative therapeutic strategies.

The TSI group comprises 14 members originating from France, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Argentina, and Italy, including 2 scientists, 1 research engineer, 2 post-doctoral scientists, 5 PhD students, and 4 Master students.
