Han_Xue_720x720Assistant Professor, Microbial Infection and Immunity

586 Biomedical Research Tower (BRT)
460 W 12th Ave, Columbus OH 43210

Membership:  Pelotonia Institute for Immuno-Oncology

Research Interests

The main research interests of the Han Lab are to 1) study new mechanisms of immune escape in solid tumors and hematologic malignancies; 2) identify novel immunomodulatory pathways and their applications to treat cancer, inflammation, and autoimmune diseases; 3) understand the mechanisms of immune-related adverse events caused by cancer immunotherapy. Her current research is focusing on PD-1H (VISTA), a newly identified immune check point molecule, to study the mechanisms of how this pathway modulates anti-cancer immunity and controls autoimmune responses and to develop new therapeutic methods in mouse cancer and immune-related disease models. She is also putting big efforts in translating her studies into clinic.
