Sonia Sharma, Assistant Professor and Director of the Division of Cell Biology, La Jolla Institute

Sonia Sharma’s current research focuses on using unbiased, genome-scale approaches to unravel innate immunity, the body’s early immune response to microbial pathogens and neoplastic cells, which has also been implicated as a common causal factor in many inflammatory, allergic and autoimmune diseases. She integrates cutting-edge genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, computational and translational approaches to define the key genetic mechanisms regulating cellular innate immunity, and determine how they impact human health and disease.

Chair’s opening remarks

WVIC/WAC Day 1 - Nov 29 @ 13:50

Panel: Understanding the TME; what’s left to learn?

  • How can we apply proteomics to the TME – how is this informing multiple targets?
  • Balancing power of profiling and proteomics – will proteomics ever be ready for plug and play in the clinic?
  • Advances in imaging the TME
  • Characterizing effective T cell responses in and that track to the TME
  • Non-tumor components of the TME as a therapeutic strategy -stromal cells, myeloid cells, other tissue resident cells
