The research mission of the Snook laboratory is to discover new aspects of cancer biology and immunology and to apply them to human health by creating new therapies. We work with in vitro and in vivo model systems, clinicians, biostatisticians, and others to accomplish these goals. Together, we have successfully translated novel hypotheses through preclinical studies to clinical trials in cancer patients.
In addition to the science, the laboratory is also invested in training future scientists. We mentor PhD, MD/PhD, MD, and MS students enrolled in various programs of the Jefferson College of Life Sciences and Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University. We also welcome post-doctoral trainees, including basic scientists, medical residents, and research fellows in the joint NIH-sponsored fellowship training prgram in Clinical Pharmacolgy at Thomas Jefferson University and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
