Dr. Saman Maleki, PhD


I have studied H.pylori and its interactions with the human immune system for my MSc degree. For my PhD, I studied the anti-tumor activity of CD8+ T cells and NKT cells and tried to improve the anti-tumor response. I also studied IDO and its immune-independent functions. As part of my post-doctoral training, I have been involved in multiple industrial and academic projects that involves drug development, activating macrophage functions, studying the role of host vs tumor IDO on immunity, and inducing neoantigen formation in tumors.
