Combination-based immunotherapies may more effectively activate cells of both innate and adaptive immune responses. Using an orthotopic mouse model of renal cell carcinoma (RENCA), I am investigating the mechanisms whereby combinations of cytokines and other immune-modulating drugs, such as anti-CD40, result in the eradication of tumors.
Principally, I am interested in understanding the mechanisms of leukocyte recruitment into the tumor microenvironment and the responses by these tumor-infiltrating leukocytes as they relate to tumor progression and/or metastases.
