My laboratory has discovered an entirely distinct anti-tumor and anti-metastatic signaling pathway through a new class of cell death receptor, known as TMEM219. We have further obtained two monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) that activate the TMEM219 receptor, so-called "agonistic antibodies." Currently, my laboratory focuses on therapeutic potential of those TMEM219 mAbs as a monotherapy or a combinational therapy with chemodrugs and immune checkpoint inhibitors in breast, lung, colon, and pancreatic cancer and AML.
