Stephen Beers, PhD

Associate Professor in Cancer Immunology and Immunology at University of Southampton


Stephen Beers joined the University of Southampton, Faculty of Medicine in 2002. He leads a research group within Cancer Sciences studying antibody drugs and their mechanisms of action. The group’s research is currently focussed on two main areas: 1) the mechanisms of action of immunomodulatory mAb, and 2) how the tumour microenvironment affects antibody effector function and how this might be manipulated to enhance patient outcomes. Their work utilises a portfolio of complimentary models incorporating in vitro 3D modelling, appropriate in vivo model systems and primary clinical material.
