The Gabrilovich laboratory studies the mechanisms by which tumors evade recognition by immune system and on novel effective therapeutic methods to overcome this problem.
In particular, the Gabrilovich laboratory studies how tumors interact with myeloid cells. They investigate molecular and cellular mechanisms of myeloid cell differentiation in cancer, mechanisms by which myeloid cells regulate immune responses and develop therapies to target abnormalities in myeloid cell function and T-cell responses in cancer.
The microscope in the image belonged to William E. Horner, M.D., a collaborator with Caspar Wistar, M.D., in the early 1800s.
Dr. Horner, a lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania, was a pioneer of the use of microscopes in anatomical and medical research. He authored Special Anatomy and Histology, a seminal text on the subject.
