My research interest is in tumor immunology. I want to better understand the interaction between cancer and the immune system, specifically the ways in which cancer cells hide from and inhibit a patient's immune response. In this way, I hope to reverse this suppression of the immune system in order to allow for the patient's own immune cells to fight and clear their cancer.
My goal is to be a true physician-scientist in pediatric oncology, working at the bench to advance cancer immune therapy and bring new treatment options to the bedside. I will remain clinically involved with my patients while at the same time be hands-on with developing the treatments that will help to cure them.
