Dr. Koss’s research interests are focused on understanding the fundamental mechanisms T cells utilize to adapt to environmental stress. His laboratory is currently developing and applying cutting-edge proteomic approaches to elucidate how proteome turnover dynamics influence the ability of a T cell to persist in solid tumors. To translate these findings, his laboratory seeks to establish new immune monitoring methodologies and engineer CAR T-cell therapies with superior persistence in the solid tumor environment.
