Rob Mckallip

Mercer University


 Dr. McKallip will work with department chair Dr. Robert Visalli. The new department was created by joining the Basic Sciences Department on the Macon campus and the Biomedical Sciences Department on the Savannah campus. Columbus faculty in the biomedical sciences will join the department as that campus grows.

Research Interest

 My laboratory is interested understanding regulation of the immune response.  Specific projects include exploring novel strategies to stimulate the immune response to tumors and understanding mechanisms used by tumor cells to escape immune recognition and destruction. Exploring the possibility of targeting CD44 isoform expression for the treatment of complication associated with MRSA infections.  Identifying and testing naturally occurring compounds for immunomodulatory as well as anti-tumor properties.
