Our lab is focused on understanding the dynamics of immune responses. We aim to develop new and improved diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic tools to detect, diagnose, treat, and prevent cancer. Our research aims are threefold: (1) to develop methods for non-invasive monitoring of immune responses; (2) to investigate changes in the tumor microenvironment (TME) in response to treatment; and (3) to explore how to reshape the TME to a more pronounced anti-tumor status and develop tools to realize this possibility. In the long term, our goals are to help better understand the dynamics of immune responses, to investigate what is behind the heterogeneous response to cancer immunotherapy, and to help understand what causes an immunosuppressive or an anti-tumor TME. These are essential for developing more effective therapies, more effective methods for early detection of cancer, and new prognostic modalities.
