Research Summary

Immunomodulation of the tumor microenvironment with radiation therapy; novel approaches to in situ cancer vaccination

Research Detail

The efforts of my translational research laboratory focus on examining the mechanisms and pre-clinical testing of treatment strategies that combine radiation and molecular-targeted therapeutics to drive anti-tumor immune responses. Our experimental approach is founded on robust in vivo studies in murine tumor models and is augmented by ex vivo and in vitro approaches that include immuno-histopathology, cellular immune function assays, radio-sensitivity assays, flow cytometry, as well as molecular and cellular biology techniques.
