Research

Overview

I study the interaction of acute myeloid leukemia cells with bone marrow microenvironment and T cells, focusing on translational cell therapeutics. My work extends to developing clinical-grade cell therapeutics to mitigate graft versus host disease. I established a biospecimen bank for patients with lymphoma who received CAR-T cell therapy.
