The Wucherpfennig lab within the Department of Cancer Immunology and Virology studies the molecular resistance pathways in tumors that fail to respond to current immunotherapy approaches. Using innovative tumor – T cell co-culture screens, we have identified a large number of resistance genes and pathways within tumor cells (Science 359:770; Nature 506:52). The goal of this project will be to study tumor cell – immune cell interactions in human tumors and murine models using cutting-edge high-dimensional imaging approaches, including CODEX (DNA barcoded antibodies for highly multiplexed imaging) and spatial transcriptomics. Identified pathways will be evaluated as novel targets for cancer immunotherapy Located in Boston and the surrounding communities, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute brings together world renowned clinicians, innovative researchers and dedicated professionals, allies in the common mission of conquering cancer, HIV/AIDS and related diseases.
