My lab is primarily focused on developing novel immune-based strategies for treating cancer. The basic idea is to inject various immunostimulatory reagents, including live attenuated microorganisms into a primary tumor. This treatment can stimulate an immune response against the tumor and develop systemic anti-tumor immunity that protects against metastatic disease.
We are also interested in mouse models of cancer and are developing novel mouse models. The influence of tobacco smoke exposure on the innate immune system is another area of research in the lab.
