Jérôme Galon is Research Director at INSERM (National Institute of Health and Medical Research) and leader of the INSERM Integrative Cancer Immunology laboratory, at the Cordeliers Research Centre. He obtained his Ph.D. in Immunology, Laboratory of Cellular and Clinical Immunology (Pr WH Fridman) at the Curie Institute, Paris, France, and he did post-doctoral research with Dr JJ. O'Shea at the NIH in the Lymphocyte Cell Biology Section, Bethesda, USA.
His current interests and major contributions concern basic and translational research in cancer immunology, using systems biology. His laboratory demonstrated that the adaptive immune response within the tumour was a better predictor of survival than traditional staging based on the size and spread of a tumour.
