Nicholas Christian DeVito
Medical Instructor in the Department of Medicine

I am an instructor of Medical Oncology who primarily treats patients with gastrointestinal malignancies. My laboratory and translational research is focused on tumor immune evasion and immunotherapy, with a specific interest in dendritic cell tolerance.

Current Research Interests

I am interested in tumor immunology and developmental immunotherapeutics in gastrointestinal malignancies including gastric cancer, colorectal adenocarcinoma, pancreatic adenocarcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, esophageal cancers, and hepatocellular carcinoma. My research focuses on metastatic mechanisms and how they influence tumor immune evasion during disease progression, particularly antigen presenting cells such as dendritic cells.
