Design principles of engineered immune systems

Cancer Immunotherapy has dramatically revitalized immuno-oncology, but many challenges still remain. We develop and leverage CRISPR-based platforms in primary human T cells to discover ways to engineer robust anti-tumor immunity. 

Our goal is to design breakthrough cell-based therapies and learn how to engineer immune cells to function in the suppressive tumor microenvironment. 

We are growing and always looking for curious, creative and courageous scientists - join us!
