Dr. Themeli studied cancer-fighting T cells, which may be genetically targeted or otherwise modified to augment their potency and persistence. During her fellowship, she worked to further improve the therapeutic properties of the stem cell-derived T cells and use stem cells as a model system to further investigate the basic biology underlying the derivations of T cells from stem cells. She completed her postdoctoral studies at MSKCC in Dr. Michel Sadelain’s lab
