My clinical experience has been focused on the development and investigation of novel immunotherapeutic approaches to the treatment of cancer. I initiated a program in xenogeneic DNA vaccination at Memorial Sloan-Kettering and followed the translational pathway from initial mouse studies through on-site GMP manufacturing to leading phase I trials. As part of this endeavor, in collaboration with Drs. Alan Houghton, James Allison and Lloyd Old, I helped to establish the Ludwig Center for Cancer Immunotherapy, which serves as the core facility for clinical immune monitoring at MSK.
