The Powell Lab is actively investigating the application of immune-based therapy for cancer. Building on interrogations in basic T cell biology in the lab, bench-to-bedside translational immunology is being developed, with a strong focus on T cell-based therapy for cancer.

Major areas of focus: Human Cancer Immunotherapy

  • Natural tumor-reactive T cells

  • Genetically modified lymphocytes (TCR/CAR)

  • Cancer vaccination & immunomodulation

  • Impact of costimulation on T cell function and memory formation

  • Innovative approaches to genetic engineering of T cells (Universal receptors and approaches)

  • Novel T cell isolation & expansion methods

  • Th9 cells in cancer

    Unique resources:

  • Viable Primary Human Tumor Cell Bank

  • Human ovarian cancer cell lines, models

  • Unique lentiviral/retroviral constructs

  • Xenograft mouse studies

    Collaborations:

  • Protein chemistry (looking for unique protein binding partners with high affinity)

  • Bispecific antibody production

  • Sensitive in vivo imagingfor antibodies and cells

  • Costimulatory signal transduction cascades Rotations: available in Spring 2013.

  • TCR gene cloning

  • Mouse models of macrophage-involved Inflammatory Disease / Autoimmunity
