Focus of Work


The primary aim of my research is to understand the mechanisms in potentiating anti-tumor immune responses and I am currently focused on the following areas: (1) Identify novel immuno-oncology targets with data mining in bioinformatics and develop innovative therapeutics in targeting immune suppressor, stromal and tumor cells in the tumor microenvironment. (2) Develop antibody cytokine fusions for controlled delivery of immune modulatory cytokines for anti-tumor immune responses.
