Our laboratory and clinical research programs seek to develop novel treatments for cancer that harness and enhance the immune system’s ability to detect and kill cancer cells.  Natural killer cells, one type of immune cell in the body, are capable of killing cancer cells and much of the research we do focuses on augmenting or recovering the function of these cells to fight cancer.  Our research has been supported by the National Cancer Institute, CLL Global Research Foundation, the American Cancer Society, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, Multiple Myeloma Opportunities for Research and Education, and the Ohio State University / Nationwide Children’s Hospital Collaborative Research Award.
