Research Interests

My studies focus on cancer immunology and nanomedicine. I have over 20 years of experience as a biomaterial scientist with diverse expertise in nanotechnology and immunology. More recently, my research is exploring biomolecules modulating tumor microenvironment via priming innate immune cells. My study aims to identify novel biomolecules mediating specific modulation to macrophages and DCs. I also explore multifunctional nanoparticle platform with the aim to deliver a high load of drug to tumor and improve endogenous antitumor immune responses.
