- Project Title: CD8+ T cell exhaustion in cancer
Short description of my project
The persistence of antigen leads T cell to a dysfunctional state, called exhaustion. The aim of this project is to develop novel stochastic mathematical models of T cell exhaustion. This topic is also relevant for immuno-therapies, such as PD-1 check-point inhibitor therapies, which are being used to treat cancer or chronic infection.
In the video below, Flavia describes why she decided on this PhD topic, and also her research project (the video was created at the Complementary Skills Workshop in Leeds):
