The Research Laboratory of Stephen Gottschalk, MD

About the Research Laboratory of Stephen Gottschalk, M.D.Stephen Gottschalk, M.D.

We are interested in cancer immunotherapy, which holds the promise on improving outcomes for cancer patients since it does not rely on the cytotoxic mechanisms of conventional therapies.

Our research is focused on cellular immunotherapy with antigen-specific T cells. We are exploring conventional antigen-specific T cells as well as T cells that are genetically modified to render them tumor-specific and/or enhance their antitumor activity.

We are evaluating cell therapies developed in our laboratory in early Phase clinical studies, and are investigating strategies on how to improve these in preclinical models.
