Research Interests

Primarily my research activities focus towards characterizing the cellular arm of the immune response with the goal of developing immune-based strategies to prevent, detect and treat cancer.


IROC Project (Immune Response to Ovarian Cancer)

  • Characterization of the T cell response in ovarian tumours and ovarian ascites to support our development of an adoptive immunotherapy program

Therapeutic cancer vaccines

  • We are optimizing various vaccine candidates in combination with adjuvants to stimulate and focus the immune system to target tumours.

Antigen discovery

  • Evaluating nitrotyrosine as a target antigen for directing cancer therapy

Combination Therapy

  • Evaluating the synergistic potential of adoptive T cell therapy when combined with vaccination
