Dr. Schoenberger is a Professor in the Laboratory of Cellular Immunology and Co-Director of the San Diego Center for Personalized Cancer Immunotherapy, as well as Adjunct Professor of Medicine in the Division of Hematology and Oncology at the UCSD Moores Cancer Center. He is a leader in understanding the immunobiology of CD4+ and CD8+ T cell responses with particular expertise on the generation and maintenance of immune memory by these lymphocyte subsets. More recently he has sought to translate these fundamental insights into new approaches to the personalized immunotherapy of cancer. He and his team have developed a range of novel tools and approaches for the identification of personalized tumor neoantigen targets for immunotherapeutic intervention in solid cancers including personalized cancer vaccines and adoptive cellular therapy. Clinical trials based on applying these discoveries are scheduled to begin at the UCSD Moores Cancer Center in 2018.
