Meet Natalie Grover
Area of Interest
My primary research interest is in novel therapies for the treatment of lymphoma. My particular focus is in cellular therapy including innovative approaches to chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapy, improving the efficacy of CAR-T cells, and management and prevention of unique toxicities associated with this treatment. My ultimate goal is to improve therapeutic options of lymphoma patients, while minimizing toxicities and maintaining their quality of life.
