After finishing a PhD in deciphering the mechanisms behind prostate cancer progression and treatment failure my current research focuses on understanding the role of Galectin-9 in dendritic cell function, with a particular interest in cancer progression. We are using flow cytometry, Western Blot and microscopy to unravel Gal-9 cellular location in dendritic cells as well as the molecular mechanism behind its role in promoting tumour cell recognition and phagocytosis via its interaction with DCSI
