Lab information

Our lab focuses on the study of immune-immune and immune-tumor interactions, under physiological and pathological conditions. By understanding the synergies and competitions between immune- and tumor- editing and immune- and tumor- cell communications we are able to better understand the basic biology of tumor-immune responses. We aim to capitalize on that basic understanding to identify and design better immunotherapeutic tools.

The overarching themes of our lab include:

1- Understanding the molecular mechanisms of tumor- and immune- editing co-evolution

2- Identification of novel inter-cellular communications; immune-immune and immune-tumor interactions.

3- Development of novel cancer diagnostic and immuno-therapeutic modalities.
