This webcast will describe employing single cell genomics and spatial transcriptomics to discover a previously unexplored oncofetal reprogramming of the tumor ecosystem. Analysis of ~212,000 cells representing human fetal, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and mouse liver revealed remarkable fetal-like reprogramming of the tumor microenvironment. Specifically, the HCC ecosystem displayed features reminiscent of fetal development, including re-emergence of fetal-associated endothelial cells and fetal-like tumor-associated macrophages. The speaker will describe a shared immunosuppressive oncofetal ecosystem in fetal liver and HCC and its potential implications for targeting therapeutic interventions in HCC and identifying similar paradigms in other cancers and diseases.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identification of fetal-associated endothelial cells and macrophages in HCC
  • Shared oncofetal ecosystem between human fetal liver and HCC
  • The phenomenon of oncofetal reprogramming in the tumor ecosystem
