Aging of the immune system in CRC

Recent studies provide evidence for a dramatic dysfunction of the immune system due to aging. In this regard, an attenuated anti-tumor immune response could explain the increased cancer incidence in elderly people. As functional data supporting this hypothesis are scarce, this project will analyze the role of an aged adaptive immune system in a murine model of colorectal cancer.
