Scientific summary

My current research activity aims at studying the differentiation mechanisms of immune celles so that they can be reprogrammed. In this context, I am interested in the regulation of the differentiation, activation and exhaustion of T cells. 

During my career, I have come to understand disciplines as different as Molecular Biology, Biochemistry and Immunology. Despite everything, there is one point in all of this work: cancer, and how to by pass the mechanisms developed by tumors to resist strategies aimed at eliminating them.
