This lab has been interested in understanding the immune response to tumors in vivo by characterizing the cytokines expressed by lymphocytes infiltrating tumors and the tumors themselves. We have recently demonstrated that CD40/CD154 interactions are crucial in the generation of anti-tumor immunity by tumor vaccines in mice. We are now actively investigating the mechanisms underlying this phenomenon, and are trying to exploit this in the generation of more effective vaccines.
