Tumor-associated neutrophils: A double-edged sword in cancer development?
Etienne MEYLAN, PhD - Associate Professor - Laboratory of Immuno-Oncology, Bordet Cancer Research Laboratories, Institut Jules Bordet, and Laboratory of Immunobiology (ULB)

Etienne Meylan received a PhD in life sciences for his work on innate immunity, after which he held a postdoctoral position at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), exploring NF-kappaB signaling in lung cancer. In 2011, he established his laboratory at EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne). He was recruited to the ULB (Université Libre de Bruxelles) in 2021, as an Associate Professor to hold a new Chair of Immuno-Oncology within the Faculties of Medicine and Sciences. His laboratory explores the metabolic and immune perturbations that affect lung cancer development, with a focus on tumor-associated neutrophils.
