My goal is to contribute to the improvement of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy for the treatment of cancer. Our group is working on the development of mesothelin (MSLN) CAR T cell therapy for the treatment of ovarian cancer. A preclinical model of orthotopic ovarian cancer in mice has been established in our group, which allows to test in vivo the antitumor efficacy of MSLN CAR T cells.
I organize since 2016 the Antigen Presentation and T Cell Activation doctoral course (Karolinska Institutet #2363).
