2018 Undergraduate Summer Research Program Participant

Sai’s project focuses on developing an innovative therapeutic intervention for non-small cell lung cancer by studying a particular protein that is present in the tumor microenvironment and causes immunotherapies to be ineffective. Sai will produce and characterize a novel drug candidate that will be tested for its ability to stimulate the immune system to attack the tumor. This project has the potential to be translated clinically and extend to treating other aggressive cancers.
