My research focuses on developing novel cancer immunotherapies and immunotherapy combinations. I am the principal investigator of a broad portfolio of first-in-human clinical trials exploring new immunotherapeutic agents. In parallel, I am an active translational researcher addressing problems at the intersection of the clinic and basic science laboratories. My current work focuses on identifying predictive biomarkers of response and resistance to immune checkpoint inhibitors. I am currently a co-leader of the American Cancer Society-SU2C Lung Cancer Dream Team, whose mission is to identify molecular mechanisms of resistance to cancer immunotherapy.
