|Research Interests||The immune system has a natural capacity to detect and eliminate infected and/or abnormal cells, however diseases often find ways to evade detection whether is it through dysfunctional T-cells, an altered stromal microenvironment, or other mechanisms. My current research interests are immunotherapies and methods to re-engineer the immune system for treatment.
