PI: JESSICA THAXTON, PHD, MSCR

Our Mission:

As an academic lab we undertake research that is basic in nature yet has direct clinical implication. We work with clinicians to determine important clinical problems and we design our research to address the basic science mechanisms that underline the sucess of cancer immunotherapies. This strategy has led us to explore the intersection between endoplasmic reticulum biology and cell metabolism to create novel immunotherapies for cancer patients.
