Abdul Ahad pursued a Ph.D. in immunogenomics and system biology in 2020. As a doctorate, he explored the role of nuclear receptor corepressors in dendritic cells and macrophages in modulating T cells responses during bacterial and viral infection.
He joined Dr. Yang Li’s lab to understand the host cross talk within tumor microenvironment in breast cancer. He is employing cutting-edge high-throughput technologies including scRNA-seq, Cytek, CyTOF and 3D imaging to capture spatiotemporal cellular and molecular events during tumor dormancy and cancer metastasis.
