Research Angle

Our laboratory studies oncolytic viruses as cancer therapy. Our research focuses on understanding how metabolism regulates oncolytic virus replication and manipulating tumor cell metabolism to improve oncolytic virus therapy. We are also studying the impact of metabolism on T cell function in the context of immunotherapy.
