RESEARCH SUMMARY

Dr. Kazusa Ishii researches cell therapy for various hematologic malignancies and non-malignant diseases. Her research focuses on 1) identification of therapeutically targetable antigens, 2) discovery, pre-clinical development and clinical translation of novel cell therapies, and 3) improving our mechanistic understanding of how T-cell-mediated therapies and the host’s immune environment affect clinical responses and disease phenotypes.

Areas of Expertise

1) cell therapy 2) T cell receptor 3) leukemia 4) lymphoma 5) immunotherapy
