I am honored to have been selected as the Immuno-Oncology Innovation Award recipient this year. Our research focus is to dissect novel immune-tumor-stroma circuitries that govern the pancreatic cancer tumor microenvironment. This award  helped us in sharing our research at the AACR meeting, that was an unprecedented source of great and inspirational networking. 
Anna Bianchi | Winner of the IOIA 2022 – American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting  
I would like to thank Miltenyi for selecting my work for the Immuno-Oncology Innovation Award.  The NK meeting in Luxembourg was an inspiring meeting and an outstanding opportunity to hear about the latest advances in NK cell biology. Discussing my work with other scientists during the excellent poster sessions, left me with many new ideas for my research.
