My research interests lie in the area of Immunology, Statistics, and Artificial Intelligence. My research programs are tailored toward collaborative research to obtain a conceptual understanding of disease biology that enables developing personalized drugs, with emphasis on cancer-immunology. My group also addresses the need for statistical methods for Single- cell high-throughput sequencing and immunological aspects of COVID-19.

IDENTIFYING DRUG SYNERGISTIC WITH CANCER IMMUNOTHERAPY
Role Description: Combining immunotherapies with other cancer drugs has emerged as a new hope for late-stage cancer patients, however, the lack of a principled approach to identify such effective combinations often led to poorly designed clinical trials. The proposed research engages state-of-art Artificial Intelligence techniques with drug-induced transcriptomic changes to identify drugs that synergize with immunotherapies and prioritize them for clinical trials. Its application, as well as the career development pursued by the investigator, will rationalize clinical trials, identify new treatments for advanced cancers, and advance precision immuno-oncology.
