The main objective of our research group is to identify key functional aspects affecting anti-tumor responses by T cells. To do this, we use protein engineering, guided by structural and signaling information, to generate novel molecules that allow us to explore and interrogate key aspects of receptor signaling and T cell function. We are currently focusing our efforts in developing molecules to overcome “inhibitory” signaling by immune checkpoint receptors and to enhance signaling by the T-cell receptor. 

Ricardo Fernandes recently joined CAMS Oxford Institute coming from Stanford where he developed novel molecules to effectively shut down signaling by immune receptors such as PD-1.
