“I am interested in the interaction between the tumor microenvironment and the immune cells, looking into strategies to avoid or overcome immunosuppression. I am also interested in researching ways to make available immunotherapies more effective depending on the tumor microenvironment ( as it varies depending on the type of cancer.) I would like to work in a translational lab where I have access to patient samples and clinical trials (bench to bedside, and from the bed back to the bench).”
