Dr. Freud's lab primarily studies the developmental biology of human natural killer (NK) cells that are evolutionarily designed to identify and destroy cancer. There is accumulating evidence that cancer cells target NK cell development as one means of immune evasion. His goal is to understand how NK cells develop in healthy and diseased settings to hopefully modulate this process to promote effective NK cell anti-cancer function. His lab studies the NK cell developmental pathway in humans, the microenvironment in which this process occurs, and aberrations within the pathway and/or microenvironment in the setting of cancer, particularly hematologic malignancies.
