Research Interests

The Green laboratory aims to accelerate progress in cancer care by effectively integrating immunotherapy into treatment paradigms. Our laboratory utilizes expertise in quantitative immunophenotyping, quantitative image analysis, and programmed cell death to advance the fields of radiobiology and tumor immunology. We seek to define and harness the determinants of inflammation which shape anti-tumoral immunity and influence cancer therapy efficacy. We conduct clinical, translational, and preclinical studies to improve cancer care.
