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.

DNA and RNA nucleases are wide-ranging enzymes, taking part in broad cellular processes from DNA repair to immune response control. Growing interest in the mechanisms and activities of newly discovered nucleases inspired us to share the detailed
