The Precision Cellular Therapy Laboratory


Roni Shouval

The Precision Cellular Therapy Laboratory is dedicated to advancing the understanding and effectiveness and safety of cellular therapies. Our research primarily focuses on uncovering drivers and mechanisms of resistance and toxicity that challenge the success of cellular therapies such as chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy and hematopoietic cell transplantation. By integrating multiomic approaches and novel computational techniques, we strive to identify and decode the biological drivers of disease resistance and adverse outcomes. Our goal is to translate these insights into more precise and safer therapeutic strategies, ultimately enhancing patient outcomes in hematologic malignancies and beyond.

Current Projects: 

  • Synthesizing multimodal data for prediction of CAR-T cell therapy outcome
  • Uncovering genomic drivers of resistance to CAR-T cell therapy in lymphoma
  • Dynamic Modeling of Cellular Therapy Toxicity
