Current Research and Scholarly Interests
Specific areas of active research include:
1. Immune Cell Allotransplantation for Curing Cancer: To develop novel vaccine strategies which induce tumor antigen specific immunity prior to infusing the donor inoculum and improve graft-versus-tumor reactions without exacerbation of graft-versus-host disease.
2. Augmenting Antibody Therapy for Curing Cancer: To identify and develop immunomodulatory antibodies targeting immune effector cells subsets, such as natural killer cells, which enhance the anti-tumor activity of tumor-targeting antibodies.
