My primary research interest lies in improving the care and treatment of patients with colon and rectal cancer. My lab focuses on mitigating and improving the patients immune response to cancer with a focus on understanding the ways that macrophages and T cells work to help tumors evade immune mediated killing as well as cytotoxic chemotherapy. I hope is to work in multidisciplinary fashion to attack patient’s cancer from a multitude of angles to give patients the best chance of survival and quality of life.
