About the Scientist

Stone studies T cell biology and its implications in cancer and other diseases.

Stone came to Wistar as an Assistant Professor in 2015. She studied biology as an undergraduate at the University of New Hampshire and went on to earn a Ph.D. in biology at the University of California San Diego in 2009. During her postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Steve Hedrick at the University of California San Diego she studied the regulation of T cell differentiation and function by the transcription factor FOXO1 and began to investigate tumor immunology.

The Stone Laboratory

The Stone laboratory is investigating T cell biology in the context of specific microenvironments. Currently, the lab is focusing on the influence of tumor microenvironments and the digestive tract on T cell biology. The long-term goal of the lab is to exploit an understanding of the effect of microenvironments on T cell biology to treat diseases including cancer.
