Dr. Ansari's research focus is on the role of novel Th17 immunity in allograft rejection and tolerance. Th17 cells have a shared differentiation pathway with regulatory T cells (Tregs). Both Tregs and Th17 cells have been implicated in modifying the immune response against tumors. Understanding the biology of these cells will facilitate the ultimate development of cancer immunotherapy agents.
