I am interested in studying radiation induced immunosuppression which has been linked to inferior outcomes in a variety of solid tumors. In particular, I am interested in better understanding the link between radiation field size and fractionation regimens on immune system effects and studying in more detail the pathophysiology of radiation induced immunosuppression, including cytokine effects and effects on circulating lymphocyte subtypes and functional immunity.
