Jose (J.C.) C. Villasboas Bisneto, M.D., is a physician-scientist specializing in the treatment of lymphomas, stem cell transplantation and adoptive cell therapy. His laboratory studies the interactions between the patients' immune systems and cancer cells. Using advanced single-cell and imaging technology, his research seeks to understand why many times the immune system fails to control (and sometimes actually helps) cancer growth. Using this knowledge and aided by artificial intelligence systems, his team aims to identify and test new ways to promote effective anti-cancer immunity for patients with lymphoma.
Dr. Villasboas' overarching research goal is to facilitate the identification and treatment of lymphoma patients, extending the hope of cure to all patients with this disease. His work is focused on identifying and testing strategies to use patients' own immune systems to fight cancer cells. These immune-based treatments have revolutionized cancer care and have the potential to enhance, or even replace, traditional chemotherapy. Finding the best approach for using different immunotherapy agents requires a deeper understanding of the immune function in patients with cancer. His research seeks to bridge these gaps in knowledge in order to facilitate the selection of the most effective and least toxic treatments.
