Our research interests lie broadly in cancer immunotherapy and nanotechnology for early, sensitive detection of cancer and inflammation, and toward improved therapy through site-specific delivery of therapeutics. For these goals, we develop biomolecules (antibodies, nucleic acids, and other proteins), nano-sized particles, and engineered immune cells (T and NK cells), and validate these components in animal model of human diseases for their ability to detect and treat disease. We employ a variety of imaging techniques (whole body optical imaging, MRI, PET) to evaluate real-time distribution and targeted localization of particles and cells.

Current research topics include:

  • Global, unbiased mining of human antibodies maintaining natural pairing of Ig heavy and light chains
  • Engineering diagnostic and therapeutic nanoparticles toward cancer to allow image-guided drug delivery
  • Engineering of T/NK cells to recognize tumors through chimeric antigen receptor and magnetism-guided localization
