Title: Metabolic, Neuroendocrine, and Immunological Effects of Cancer Progression and Cachexia

Bio & Research Synopsis: Tobias Janowitz is a medical oncologist and clinician scientist, who leads a research program on the whole body response to cancer at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. His research focus is on the effect that inflammatory cytokines, specifically interleukin-6, have on peripheral organs, the brain, and neuroendocrine system and how their reprogramming affects anti-cancer immunity and immunotherapy. He utilizes model systems of cancer progression and cancer associated cachexia and data from patients with pancreatic, lung, and colorectal cancer.
