Andrea Schietinger lab

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.
