Immunology of MHC class I-deficient tumours

We have documented the epigenetic mechanisms of decreased surface expression of MHC class I molecules on tumour cells and proposed immunotherapy for MHC class I-deficient tumuors. [pubmed] [doi]

JAK/STAT signalling pathways in cancer and cellular senescence

We have investigated JAK/STAT signaling pathways (specifically IFNγ/STAT1 and IL-6/STAT3) and their balance in cellular stress, senescence, and cancer development and therapy. We also evaluated novel pSTAT3 inhibitors.[pubmed] [doi]

Proof of principle (immuno)therapeutic experiments using murine models

As part of collaborations and contract research, we have tested new therapeutic approaches and agents in murine cancer models, such as cellular vaccines, modified cytokines, or nanoparticles. [pubmed] [doi]
