    Glioblastomas remain one of the most aggressive and lethal tumours, with no effective treatments available. Here, Xandra Breakefield and colleagues examine the ways in which glioblastomas manipulate brain cells and immune cells in their environment to support tumour growth and the opportunities available for new therapies that disrupt these interactions.
