The Carson laboratory, led by William E. Carson III, at The Ohio State University is interested in the translation of basic science discoveries in the field of immunology into clinical treatments for cancer. Our research focuses on factors that influence the immune response to cancer cells, especially in the setting of breast cancer and malignant melanoma.
