Sud Anand, PhD: Research projects on non-coding RNAs in host cells impacting solid tumor progression with emphasis on immune cells in the tumor microenvironment.
Lisa M Coussens, PhD: We are broadly interested in understanding signals controlling innate and adaptive leukocyte responses and activities in solid tumors with projects examining myeloid – T cell cross talk and mechanisms regulated by complement proteins as mediators of tumor progression and tumor immunity.
Alexey Danilov, M.D., PhD: Preclinical and translational research on elucidating novel targets within the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway and mechanism of action and resistance to transcriptional CDKs in B-cell malignancies.
Lara E. Davis, MD: Translational sarcoma research elucidating aspects of the osteosarcoma immune microenvironment and undefined kinase fusions and optimizing CDK4 inhibition to increase sarcoma sensitivity to chemotherapy.
Julia Maxson, PhD: Understanding how genetic alterations cooperate to drive leukemia, and leveraging that information to develop therapeutic strategies.
Gordon Mills, MD, PhD: Translational programs characterizing mechanisms of drug sensitivity and resistance in human tumors with broad array of wet bench and bioinformatics tools.
Amy Moran, PhD: Translational cancer immunotherapy projects evaluating cross talk between sex steroids and immune cell function, role of microbiome, and mechanisms of action of non-conventional of T & NK cell inhibitors.
Ferdinando Pucci, PhD: Humoral immune responses, cell-mediated immunity, and antigen-specific immune reactions to tumor-derived extracellular vesicles impacting malignancy with the goal of developing next generation cancer vaccines.
Rosalie Sears, PhD: Pancreatic cancer research projects focused on tumor heterogeneity, lineage plasticity, epigenetic regulation and mechanisms of therapeutic resistance using omic and image analysis of patient tumors, patient-derived and genetic mouse models.
Josh Walker, M.D., PhD: Tumor cell intrinsic and microenvironmental factors regulating T cell effector dysfunction in cancer, impacting efficacy of novel combinations of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy in cancer utilizing preclinical models with defined tumor antigens and clinical samples.
