Area of interest

The laboratory of Dr. Vohra in the division of Surgical Oncology, is focused on “translational science”. We are engaged in studying immune responses in cancer patients with the ultimate goal of developing and optimizing immunotherapies and systemic therapies that may be directly applied to patients. We are actively interrogating both tumor and lymph node specimens from patients with breast cancer to understand how an immune response to the tumor is orchestrated and how it evolves to either become pro-tumor or anti-tumor. Understanding how this occurs may allow us to find ways to help the immune system be more effective at destroying cancer.
Additional collaborations involve studying breast cancer metastasis, impact of obesity and race on breast density, disparities in cancer outcomes in various cancers as well as clinical research.
