Personal profile

Research interests

My doctoral programme concerns the immune cells that infiltrate tumours which are the basis of immunotherapy, a relatively new set of very powerful cancer treatments. Immunotherapy could allow better cancer treatment by exploiting the ability of certain immune cells to identify and eliminate undesirable cells such as cancer cells. I aim to provide new insights into the genetic traits of the tumour-infiltrating cells and tumours to look for potential new druggable targets using the Oxford Nanopore sequencing technology.
