My lab focuses on understanding the role of autophagy, an intricate process of intracellular self-digestion, in the immune response. We use genetically modified mouse strains with various defects in autophagy to analyze lymphocyte development, T cell activation and antigen presentation by dendritic cells. Our current efforts focus on the impact of autophagy on tumor antigen presentation by dendritic cells. We hope these studies will help us understand how anti-tumor immunity is generated and why tumors frequently evade recognition by the immune system.
