Cancer-Focused Research

Research in my laboratory include these specific aspects: 1) mechanisms of cancer immune evasion; 2) development of novel cancer immunotherapy; 3) Immune therapy-related mucosal toxicity; 4) mechanisms of cancer therapeutic resistance; 4) cancer biomarker discovery. Prostate Cancer is one of my lab's main focus areas. I am also researching the NKG2D axis in tumors which can be applied to a broad spectrum of cancer types and autoimmunity.
