Dr. Yee, along with James P. Allison, Ph.D., Antoni Ribas, M.D., Ph.D., and Drew M. Pardoll, M.D., Ph.D., is leading the SU2C-CRI Cancer Immunology Translational Research Dream Team, which is performing comprehensive experiments aimed at improving immunotherapy’s ability to improve patient outcomes.
Among the Dream Team’s activities are: systematically assessing the expression of candidate molecules and pathways in the tumor microenvironment before and after checkpoint blockade immunotherapy; using a combination of sequencing techniques to assess checkpoint blockade-induced T-cell responses to tumor-specific neo-antigens; working to improve the quality of cancer-specific T cell generated for adoptive cell transfer (ACT) therapy; evaluating the effect of epigenetic therapy on immunotherapy and assessing the combination of checkpoint blockade immunotherapy and ACT in patients.
