    Venue: Teams


    The immune system is an extremely complex orchestra. The immune system and the central nervous system are the two most complex set of cells, connections and mediators in our body. Alterations of immunity and inflammation represent a metanarrative of modern medicine, spanning from infectious diseases to cardiovascular pathology to cancer.
    Inflammatory cells and mediators are a key component of the tumor microenvironment. A change in paradigm and dissection of accelerators and brakes of immunity have spearheaded the birth of cancer immunotherapy. COVID-19 has highlighted how little we know of immunity to microbial challenges. As for cancer, a better understanding of the interaction of immunity with SARS-CoV-2 is likely to pave the way to new diagnostic and therapeutic tools.



    Alberto Mantovani, MD, is Emeritus Professor of Pathology at the Humanitas University in Milan, and Scientific Director of the Istituto Clinico Humanitas. His attention has been focused on molecular mechanisms of innate immunity and inflammation. He has contributed to the advancement of knowledge in the field of Immunology formulating new paradigms and identifying new molecules and functions.

    For his research activity he has received several national and international awards, such as the Triennial OECI Award from the Organization of the European Cancer Institutes, the Robert Koch Award for his contribution to tumor immunology and immunotherapy, the American-Italian Cancer Foundation (AICF) Prize for Excellence in Medicine and, most recent, the American Association for Cancer Research International Pezcoller Award for Extraordinary Achievement in Cancer Research. The broad impact of his contributions is testified by citations. As of November 2019 he has over 115,900 (Scopus), 108,900 (Web of Science) or 166,900 (Google Scholar) citations and an H-index of 163 (Scopus), 161 (Web of Science) or 187 (Google Scholar).
