Hsiao-Tzu (Jessie) Ni, M.S., Ph.D.
Fellowship dates: 1995-1997
Research Emphasis: LFA-1-mediated costimulation of CD8+ T cell proliferation requires phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase activity, Signaling pathways activated by leukocyte function-associated Ag-1-dependent costimulation. and Phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase activity is not essential for B7-1-mediated costimulation of proliferation or development of cytotoxicity in murine T cells.

Elena Savelieva, Ph.D.
Protul Shrikant, Ph.D.
Fellowship dates: 1996-2000
Research Emphasis: Opposing effects of IL-2 in tumor immunotherapy: promoting CD8 T cell growth and inducing apoptosis.,CTLA-4 blockade reverses CD8+ T cell tolerance to tumor by a CD4+ T cell- and IL-2-dependent mechanism. and Control of syngeneic tumor growth by activation of CD8+ T cells: efficacy is limited by migration away from the site and induction of nonresponsiveness.
