The goal of our laboratory is to understand when, why, and how immune cells become unresponsive to tumors. We develop genetic cancer mouse models that mimic cancer development in patients, investigate T cell responses over the course of tumor development, and define the molecular and epigenetic mechanisms that are responsible for the failure to control and eliminate tumors. Detailed information about our research is available at www.schietingerlab.com.

Disclosures

Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.

MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.

Andrea Schietinger discloses the following relationships and financial interests:

  • Bristol-Myers Squibb
