Area of Interest
The Meier Lab explores novel signal transduction pathways in T-cells that impact their antitumor activity in the tumor microenvironment. His lab is particularly interested in how extracellular signals converge to regulate mitochondrial function, and how this in turn affects T-cell phenotype and tumor immunity. The primary focus of his research is to uncover new therapeutic targets to improve the long-term effectiveness of cellular therapeutics to treat patients.
