    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Adoptive T cell immunotherapy entails engineering immune cells to recognize cancer-specific antigens and target them for destruction. Barriers to efficacy can arise from both tumor antigen related as well as T cell related features. I am interested developing noninvasive molecular tools that enable us to understanding these relationships to improve the clinical application and development of cellular immunotherapeutics.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Along with my internal medicine and pediatrics background, I have always been interested in palliative care and end of life. I would like to apply these interests to pediatric cardiology and adult congenital cardiology, as these patients often are critically or chronically ill, and would benefit from a palliative care perspective.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests I work in the Davis Lab trying to characterize the tumor microenvironment of Ewing Sarcoma, with an eventual goal to better understand immune interactions in hopes of improving immunotherapy for these tumors.

    I am also interested in the history of medicine, specifically viewing current diseases through a historical prism, such as reading original accounts of diseases, laboratory results, and study protocols. Medicine is naturally a historical discipline: as knowledge accumulates, so medicine as a field progresses. Furthermore, by studying medicine in a historical context, I believe it enriches our current practice by connecting us with our predecessor physicians.

    Bio Adrienne H. Long, MD, PhD is a fellow in the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford. Dr. Long attend Northwestern University, where she earned both her BS in biomedical engineering and her MD. Determined to help develop novel treatments for pediatric cancer patients, she took time during medical school to pursue a PhD at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), where she helped advance CAR T cell therapies with Dr. Crystal Mackall. Her influential thesis work was the first to identify T cell exhaustion as a critical factor limiting efficacy of CAR therapies (Long et al., Nature Medicine, 2015), and also identified novel methods to enhance CAR therapies for pediatric solid tumor patients (Long/Highfill et al., Cancer Immunology Research, 2016). Dr. Long went on to complete her pediatrics residency training at Boston Children?s Hospital, where she continued her research in cancer immunology with Dr. Nicholas Haining ? this time focusing on strategies to enhance antigen presentation to augment checkpoint blockade (Long et al. Keystone Symposium on Cancer Immunotherapy, 2019). She remains dedicated to a career as a physician-scientist focused on developing novel immunotherapies for children with cancer.
