Christina Cho, PhD


Cancer biologist studying the form and function of cellular and non-cellular components of the solid tumor microenvironment (TME). Previous work includes identifying novel mechanosignaling pathways activated by unfolded fibronectin fibrils and delineating a novel role for type I interferon-mediating signaling in cancer-associated fibroblast activation. Currently working on profiling the immune milieu within the TME to develop novel immunotherapies.
