Research in the Cubillos-Ruiz lab aims at understanding how Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) stress responses sculpt immune cell function in health and disease. Our lab focuses on uncovering and characterizing the immunometabolic and epigenetic programs controlled by ER stress in cancer, pain and infectious diseases. We also have a particular interest in developing new cancer immunotherapies based on targeting aberrant ER stress responses in the tumor microenvironment.
