Interests: Cancer, Exosomes/Exomeres, Inflammation, Tumor Immunology, Tumor Microenvironment, Tumor-Associated Immune Response


My research focuses on deciphering the role of exosomes in mediating the crosstalk between the host immune system and the tumor, and the mechanisms through which exosomes coax the immune system to contribute to malignant progression. Our ultimate goal is to mine the translational potential of tumor exosome-immune system interactions.
