Over the past few decades, researchers have increasingly realized that cells in the tumor microenvironment—fibroblasts, macrophages, neutrophils, mast cells, and T cells—play a role in tumor growth. “Most of these cells have the capacity to slow down tumors, but they receive signals that push them in the other direction—promoting tumor growth,” explains Mikala Egeblad, PhD, who studies tumor microenvironment at New York's Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. She recently spoke with Cancer Discovery's Suzanne Rose about how a tumor's microenvironment may affect therapeutic responses and metastasis, as well as future research directions in the field.
