Nathan Reticker-Flynn - Principal Investigator
Nate received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology while working with Dr. Sangeeta Bhatia as part of the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. His doctoral studies focused upon developing technologies for interrogating interactions between tumors and extracellular matrix during metastatic progression. Using mouse models of lung adenocarcinoma, his studies identified key alterations in integrin and glycosylation patterns that facilitate metastasis. He pursued his postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University in the laboratory of Dr. Edgar Engleman, where he focused on using systems approaches and mouse models to investigate tumor-immune interactions during metastasis and responses to immunotherapies. His discoveries include the revelation that effective immunotherapies require systemic activation of anti-tumor immunity and that lymph node metastases serve to reeducate adaptive immune responses in a manner that promotes distant metastasis.
