AREA OF RESEARCH
Our group’s research aims to better understand immune responses to bladder cancer. Specifically, we are interested in how innate immune memory (or Trained Immunity) can be aquired in response to bladder cancer immunotherapy (BCG) and influence subsequent anti-tumour responses. We primarily use a mouse model of bladder cancer to study how both innate and adaptive anti-cancer immune responses are influenced by trained immunity acquisition.
