Our work focuses on the use of so-called oncolytic viruses for the treatment of cancer. Specifically, we are genetically modifying viruses to improve their therapeutic efficacy, studying the factors in the tumor microenvironment that determine susceptibility, and also using these same viruses as a platform for the creation of cancer vaccines. Focus: breast cancer, leukemia and ovarian cancer.
