I am a physician-scientist focused on developing novel immunotherapies with enhanced activity and reduced toxicity, for patients with solid cancers.
Clinically, I see patients in the Cancer Immunotherapy Program where I lead numerous early phase trials, with a particular focus on adoptive cell therapies for solid tumors (CAR-T and TCR). I have also led trials of intratumoral immunotherapy and next-generation cytokine therapy.
In the laboratory, I run an extramurally funded translational program focused on the role of cytotoxic immune effectors in anti-tumor responses as well as immune-related adverse events (IRAEs) after immunotherapy. This work spans high-resolution multiomic interrogation and functional validation using patient samples, as well as murine model systems.
