Mission Statement:

Detailed interrogation of the immune system to drive development of vaccines and therapeutic strategies for cancer and infectious diseases.

Research Focus:

Work in the Reeves Laboratory investigates mechanisms governing the immune response to disease, with particular interest in intracellular pathogens and solid tumors. Across projects, we apply deep-immune profiling and computational approaches to gain a more detailed understanding of the interface of the immune system with disease and the levers of effective immune-modulating therapies.
