Dr. Cristina Puig Saus' research efforts are mainly focused on the understanding of natural T cell responses to cancer and the design and clinical translation of new cellular therapies for solid tumors. Her lab is currently studying the neopitope-specific T cell responses induced after immune checkpoint blockade in patients that respond or do not respond to therapy, with the objective to define what constitutes an effective antitumor T cell response. They are also interested in developing novel CAR-T cell therapies for melanoma. They are currently starting the IND-enabling studies for one of their candidates and in parallel designing additional CAR-T cell based strategies and combination therapies. Her additional interests include the design of strategies to improve T cell gene editing for their use in adoptive T cell therapy for cancer.
