In 2014, I joined the group of Ton Schumacher as a PhD candidate. Here, I primarily focused on the development of a genetic screen system to identify factors to improve tumor-specific T cell function.
My current research, in collaboration with the lab of Daniela Thommen, is focused on the use of patient-derived tumor fragments in ex vivo cultures to assess the effect of checkpoint blockade therapies, and thereby understand the requirements of an effective immune response to immunotherapy in human cancer.
