Description of Research Expertise:

My research expertise lies in the area of cellular immunotherapy. In particular, I have experience in preclinical development of immunotherapy that employ engineered immuno-receptors (e.g. chimeric antigen receptors) for the treatment of cancer and of non-malignant conditions such as autoimmunity and transplant rejection.

In addition to conducting preclinical in vitro and in vivo studies using animal models, I have experience in conducting correlative studies in patients undergoing immunotherapy to study the immune impact of such therapies.
