This Focused Issue on Tumor Associated Macrophages in Solid Tumor: Friend or Foe is edited by Dr. Gaurav Pandey, PhD, from Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO, USA.

Dr. Pandey has received his master’s degree from Kumaun University, Nainital, and a Ph.D. degree from Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Science, Lucknow, India. He has completed his first postdoctoral training in Carver College of Medicine, University of Iowa, Iowa City, USA. He is currently Postdoctoral Research associate in Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, USA. His research interest focuses on the development of immunotherapy for solid tumor, especially engineering the immune cells, including adaptive and innate immune cells to overcome the hurdle in the treatment of solid tumor by modulating the tumor microenvironment.

Focused issue outline:

  1. Tumor associated macrophages polarization in pancreatic cancer.
  2. Tumor associated macrophages in solid tumor.
  3. Metabolic reprograming of tumor associated macrophages.
  4. Reprogramming of tumor associated macrophages against solid tumor.
  5. Tumor associated macrophages in solid tumor.
  6. Heterogeneity of macrophages in tumor microenvironment.
  7. Role of macrophages in tumor progression.
  8. Tumor associated macrophages in hypoxia and its metabolism.
  9. Macrophages checkpoint immunotherapy in solid tumor.
