Luca Gattinoni, M.D.
|Yun Ji, Ph.D.|
|Dr. Ji received her Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience & Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology from Iowa State University in 2004. Following a post-doctoral training in Dr. Byers' laboratory, Georgetown University, she joined the NCI in 2007. Since 2008, she has been working with Dr. Gattinoni on understanding transcriptional and microRNA-mediated regulation of CD8+ T cell differentiation. The goal is to generate pre-clinical results by using of animal models and human in vitro assays for the development of effective T cell-based immunotherapies.|
|Sanjivan Gautam, Ph.D.|
|Dr. Gautam received his M.S degree from Jawaharlal Nehru University, India in 2009. He then joined University Medical Center Freiburg, Germany for Ph.D. After earning Ph.D in 2013 in the field of Immunology, he joined the team of Dr. Luca Gattinoni at National Cancer Institute. He is now involved in understanding the role of different transcription factors and metabolic enzymes in T cell differentiation and memory generation. The finding will be helpful in developing efficient T cell therapies in patients with cancer.|
|Jinhui Hu, Ph.D.|
|Dr. Hu received a M.S. degree from Beihua University in 2004 and a Ph.D. degree in Immunology and Clinical Laboratory diagnostic from Fudan University, China in 2011. Following his Ph.D., Dr. Hu worked as deputy director of the Laboratory of Medicine of Gongli Hospital in Shanghai, China before joining the Gattinoni Laboratory at National Cancer Institute in 2013. His current research is focused on understanding how cellular metabolism influences T cell fate decisions and their anti-tumor activity.|
