- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Oncological Sciences
Dr Salmon then joined the Merad laboratory and learned about myeloid cell biology to develop immunotherapeutic strategies modulating this cell compartment in solid tumors to enhance clinical response to existing therapies. She showed that the paucity of activated CD103+ dendritic cells (DCs) in tumors limits checkpoint blockade efficacy. Expansion and activation of CD103+ DC progenitors at the tumor site promote T cell activation and entry into the tumor, improving tumor response to PD-L1 inhibition (Immunity 2016).
Taking advantage of her expertise in cell dynamics and the tumor microenvironment, Dr Hélène Salmon has started a research program focused on the understanding of stroma contribution to tumor immunity.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr.Salmon did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2018 and/or 2019: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
