Scientific Interest and Avenues for Collaboration
As a physician scientist, I am passionate about transforming cancer patient outcomes through an understanding of disease-induced immune mechanisms and their clinical relevance using flow-cytometry and imaging-based approaches. I believe that the highest quality of diagnostic patient workup while pioneering the development of immunological biomarker and diagnostic assays can only be achieved through multidisciplinary exchange, collaboration and translation. I am particularly interested in the effect of targeted therapies on anti-lymphoma and anti-infection properties of neutrophils, in the characterization of immunoediting in the context of clonal evolution and t-AML/MDS development, and in computational approaches for immune biomarker discovery.
