The immune response to tumors is malleable as we have learned from the various success of immunotherapies across a diversity of tumor types. What are the foundations for a solid immune response, particularly one executed by T cells? Imaging and single-cell approaches provide key insights into immune cell types that can be unleashed on tumors, identifying both their identity and the immune interactions that are to be fostered. We discuss a few of these with particular emphasis on the diversity of the myeloid system and how its component parts can contribute toward antitumor immunity.
