Group Head, T cell Immunotherapy Lab, Tumour Inflammation and Immunotherapy Program, SAiGENCI

Mara Zeissig's research lab is focused on improving response to T-cell based immunotherapies in solid cancers, with a focus on lung and pancreatic cancers. We use a range of approaches, including genetically engineered mouse models and sophisticated CRISPR-Cas9 genetic screening techniques to understand how tumours evade the immune system and identify immune modulators to increase the efficacy of immunotherapy in solid tumours.
