Andrew Daniels, PhD


Andrew (Drew) Daniels is an MD/PhD student at Yale School of Medicine. Prior to attending medical school Drew graduated from The Johns Hopkins University with a BA in Neuroscience. There, he completed research in both immunology, studying the systemic immunosuppression associated with brain tumors; and neuroscience, studying the neural circuitry underlying higher order visual processing using advanced imaging techniques.

During medical school Dr. Daniels built on his passion for immunology and immuno-oncology and earned his PhD under the co-mentorship of Dr. Marcus Bosenberg and Dr. Akiko Iwasaki. His thesis research focused on anti-tumor immunologic memory responses. He investigated critical T cell subsets for memory responses, transcriptional and epigenetic changes that defined these cells, therapeutic strategies to enhance this population, and adoptive cell therapy as a potential treatment modality.

Dr. Daniels maintains a broad interest in tumor immunology and strategies to enhance long-term anti-tumor responses. His clinical interest include head and neck cancers, immunotherapies in these settings, and adoptive cell therapies, and he is applying to otolaryngology residency programs this year.
