RESEARCH SUMMARY

Dr. Goldszmid has a long standing interest in understanding the mechanisms governing the development, functional maturation and dynamics of the mononuclear phagocyte cellular network [e.g. dendritic cells, monocytes and macrophages] that plays an instrumental role in host defense. In particular, her research focuses on linking the microbiome, mononuclear phagocyte development, and cancer and infectious diseases with the ultimate goal of identifying new potential therapeutic interventions to improve cancer treatment.

Areas of Expertise

1) mononuclear phagocytes (dendritic cells, macrophages and monocytes), 2) inflammation, 3) tumor immunology, 4) Toxoplasma gondii, 5) microbiota, 6) innate immunity
