    Collapse research overview
    My research is focus on developing natural killer (NK) cells for immunotherapeutic use against multiple myeloma, which has poor outcome despite novel therapeutic agents. In addition, elucidation of resistance mechanisms in myeloma is another area of my interest. Myeloma cells has the ability to evade immune surveillance through several potential mechanisms. Exploration of these mechanisms may lead to develop better therapeutic option in multiple myeloma.
