Dr. Dey's research interests include:

As a clinician scientist, neurosurgeon specializing in neuro-oncology, I am interested in translational research developing novel immunotherapy for Glioblastoma (GBM). My lab funded by NIH/NINDS and focuses on studying glioma associated immunosuppression and developing effective anti-glioma immunotherapy. We study both the antigen presentation and effector T cell function in the GBM microenvironment with the goal of increasing the efficiency of dendritic cells in processing tumor antigen and decreasing the effector T cell dysfunction to achieve maximal anti-tumor immune response. In addition, we also study epigenetic modification of tumor infiltrating T cells by the tumor microenvironment. I am also interested in studying the effect of radiation on brain metastasis. On that front we are analyzing the effect of stereotactic radiosurgery on the DNA and gene expression of brain tumor metastasis. Finally as a practicing physician in oncology I am interested in improving the quality of like of brain tumor patients. We are studying the effect of pet therapy on brain tumor patients. With my collaboration with Stefan Petranek, from IU Art School we are studying the human impact of living with brain tumor using slow motion videos. (
