Graduate Student, Fingleton Lab
I am a second-year graduate student in Barbara Fingleton’s lab. My research interest includes female physiology, reproductive and immune biology. In association with the Vanderbilt Cancer Biology Training Program, I plan to study sex-specific immune responses in human samples of metastatic breast cancer. In addition, I aim to assess the efficacy of a novel immunotherapeutic in two mouse models of metastatic breast cancer. Both models represent distinct breast cancer subtypes. This study will be performed in male and female cohorts to identify any influences of sex after immunotherapy treatment.
