Current research: 

Our research program aims to understand the role of the innate immune system in tumorigenesis, metastasis and therapeutic resistance. We also have specific interest in how leukocytes are recruited to specific organs during an inflammatory response on how dampening inflammation can be applied clinically.

  1. Overcoming therapeutic resistance in glioblastoma.
  2. Organ-selective recruitment of innate immune cells.
  3. Understanding the role of the innate immune system in glioma progression.
