Cancer-Focused Research

My research is focused on lung cancer immunology and immunotherapy. My overarching goal is to improve the efficacy of anti cancer immunotherapy by understanding the mechanisms of tumor immune evasion and the anti-tumor effects of the currently available immunotherapy in preclinical models for human lung cancer.
