Jose Conejo-Garcia’s research program focuses on understanding and targeting the mechanisms governing the balance between immunosuppression and protective immunity in the tumor microenvironment, with an emphasis on the crosstalk between innate (gamma/delta) and adaptive (alpha/beta) T cells, and B lymphocytes, including in Tertiary Lymphoid Structures. Discoveries for the Conejo-Garcia lab are also being translated in active clinical trials using CAR T cells to treat ovarian cancer patients.
