Research Interests

 

Recent research studies have shown that the immune system is capable of triggering an anti-tumor response in many cancer patients.  As part of the Nelson lab's Immune Response to Lymphoma (IROL) project, our research aims to take advantage of sequencing data that has identified common mutations in lymphoma and myeloma patient samples, and to test which mutations are capable of stimulating a specific T-cell response. The overall goal of this research is to develop personalized therapies that will boost patients’ own immune systems, thus enhancing their ability to fight cancer.
