Dr. Strbo's laboratory studies the development of the secreted heat shock protein cancer vaccines. In patients with cancer, the hypoxia in the tumor microenvironment generates extracellular adenosine which is highly suppressive for CTL cytotoxicity and prevents complete tumor rejection by the CTL that were generated by vaccination. Currently, he and his team are developing combinatorial vaccine gp96 vaccine approach with oxygenation that will inhibit adenosine generation and enable the vaccine-generated CTL to completely reject tumors.
