Personalized cancer immunotherapy is an area of cancer research that is gaining tremendous momentum. However, responses to immunotherapy are heterogeneous and patient care could be substantially improved by better understanding of how and why responses to immunotherapeutic approaches vary in different patients. Research interests in my group are focused on the development of machine-learning and computational approaches to help us further understand mechanisms underlying the heterogeneity of response to personalised cancer immunotherapy in which the patients’ immune system is modulated to find and kill cancer cells.
