Dr. Christopher Klebanoff is an Principal Investigator and Attending Physician at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. His research focuses on cell-based cancer immunotherapies, T cell receptors, and the therapeutic targeting of shared cancer neoantigens. Using single-cell sequencing, biophysical measurements of T cell receptor affinity, genetic engineering, and structural immunobiology, the Klebanoff lab aims to adapt adoptive T cell transfer for advanced solid tumors.
Dr. Carl June is the Richard W. Vague Professor in Immunology at the University of Pennsylvania, Director of the Center for Cellular Immunotherapies at the Perelman School of Medicine, and Director of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy. Dr. Philipp Rommel is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the June lab. Together, they are interested in lymphocyte biology, with a major translational focus on ex vivo T-cell engineering for cancer and HIV cell-based therapies.
