Enhancing cancer specific T cell responses in solid tumors
Faculty Contact Information
The Veatch lab studies T cells targeting tumor antigens in solid tumors with the goal of developing novel cellular therapies for treating cancer.
One focus is on understanding the role of tumor antigen specific CD4 T cells in shaping the tumor immune microenvironment in mouse models and cancer patients and using this knowledge to create engineered CD4 T cell products to treat multiple tumor types.
A second focus involves augmenting tumor specific T cell responses with novel therapeutic vaccination platforms in mouse models and clinical trials.
We believe everyone should have equal access to science, and we strive to create an inclusive environment that welcomes and respects diversity in all its forms—including cultural, racial, religious, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability, and mental wellbeing.
