I am a classically trained virologist with a focus on molecular mechanisms of RNA virus pathogenesis. My career is dedicated to unraveling RNA virus:host relations and devising methods of exploiting them for cancer immunotherapy and vaccine design. My background is in translation regulation and mRNA metabolism, viral RNA sensing and innate immunity, and cancer immunology and immunotherapy. Basic mechanistic research in my laboratory is supporting an ambitious clinical translational research program with active multi-center clinical trials in several cancer indications.
