Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Stanford Cancer Center
Bio Zinaida Good, PhD is specializing in computational immunology, cancer immunotherapy, and lymphocyte development. She is a Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy scholar training as a postdoctoral fellow with Profs. Crystal L. Mackall (CAR T cells) and Sylvia K. Plevritis (Cancer Systems Biology) at Stanford University. Here, she is working to define features of successful CAR T cells in patients, and to understand CAR T effects on the tumor microenvironment. During her Ph.D. studies in Computational & Systems Immunology, she trained with Profs. Garry P. Nolan and Sean C. Bendall. Her projects included: (1) predicting clinical outcomes in children with leukemia based on single-cell mass cytometry data, (2) guiding T-cell differentiation in the context of ex vivo expansion for cancer immunotherapy applications, and (3) comparing dimensionality reduction methods for single-cell data. Her background is in immunology (B.Sc. and M.Sc. from University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada) and oncology (she worked in Discovery Oncology at Genentech for 2 years). Her long-term interest is in the systems-level events required for a coordinated immune attack against cancer.
