Current Research and Scholarly Interests Recent clinical studies, by us and others, have demonstrated unequivocally that T cell based immunotherapy can eradicate cancers resistant to all other available therapies. Our program is focused on using genetically engineered T cells to treat cancer. We link the bench with the bedside, developing novel therapies for early phase testing in clinical trials, as well as conducting intensive studies on clinical samples obtained from patients treated on immunotherapy trials.
Assistant Professor of Statistics and, by courtesy, of Computer Science
Bio My current research interests include statistical machine learning, high-dimensional statistics, algorithms and data structures, and concentration inequalities. Lately, I've been developing and analyzing algorithms for ranking, admixtures, matrix factorization, and collaborative filtering and crafting concentration inequalities for random matrices. I'm also organizing a working group on Statistics for Social Good. My interest lies, more generally, in problems that bridge applications and theory and that involve drawing inferences from large, structured datasets.
Quixotic though it may sound, I hope to use computer science and statistics to change the world for the better. If you have thoughts on how to do this, feel free to contact me.

Shannon MacLaughlan David
Clinical Assistant Professor, Obstetrics & Gynecology - Gynecologic Oncology
Bio Dr. Shannon MacLaughlan David specializes in the care of women with cancers unique to women (eg, ovarian, cervix, uterine and vulva cancers among others). She takes a holistic approach to providing care for her patients, remembering that there is more to a woman than her cancer. Dr. MacLaughlan David is experienced in caring for women in all phases of their lives, including the rare adolescents and young adults with gynecologic cancers. She has special interests in minimally invasive surgery, education and professional mentorship.

Associate Professor of Molecular and Cellular Physiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory is interested in the function and plasticity CNS synapses, including studies of the detailed structure and protein content of synapses in different plastic states. We also have a strong interest in the pathophysiology of Azheimer’s disease as related to endocannabinoids. We use primarily electrophysiogy and high-resolution array tomographic imaging to dissect the function of synapses undergoing changes due either to external stimuli, disease states or internal modulation.
