    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Adoptive T cell immunotherapy entails engineering the patient’s own immune cells to recognize cancer-specific antigens and target them for destruction. Barriers to efficacy can arise from both tumor antigen related (e.g. target antigen downregulation, tumor heterogeneity) as well as T cell related (e.g. immune cell exhaustion) features. I am interested developing noninvasive molecular tools that enable us to understanding the clinical activity of cellular therapies.
