Personal profile

Research interests

My doctoral programme investigates the immune cells that infiltrate tumours (TILs) 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 to look for potential new druggable targets using Illumina and Oxford Nanopore sequencing technology. In addition, I am generating organoids from pancreatic cancer mouse models for co-culture with autologous peripheral blood lymphocytes. The goal is to isolate any reactive T cells from the pancreatic organoid-lymphocyte co-culture and to perform RNA sequencing – bulk and single cell – of the tumour-infiltrating lymphocytes.
