Abstract

My goal is to boost the immune system against cancer to develop new therapies. I aim to do this by genetically engineering the immune system and using drugs to help strengthen white blood cells of the immune system. Tumors can actively fight immunity by producing suppressive molecules. I am seeking to identify and understand these molecules in order to block them and help the immune system fight cancer. Using this knowledge, I aim to start new clinical trials for cancer.
