David Iberri, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Hematology
BioDr. Iberri is a medical oncologist and hematologist who specializes in the treatment of hematologic malignancies. His clinical practices runs the gamut of malignant and non-malignant hematologic disorders including acute and chronic leukemias, multiple myeloma and lymphomas, and bleeding and thrombotic disorders. He is actively involved in clinical trials evaluating novel agents in hematologic malignancies. His research interests are in the development and application of biomarkers to select patients most likely to benefit from therapy.

Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe Idoyaga Lab is focused on the function and biology of dendritic cells, which are specialized antigen-presenting cells that initiate and modulate our body’s immune responses. Considering their importance in orchestrating the quality and quantity of immune responses, dendritic cells are an indisputable target for vaccines and therapies.
Dendritic cells are not one cell type, but a network of cells comprised of many subsets or subpopulations with distinct developmental pathways and tissue localization. It is becoming apparent that each dendritic cell subset is different in its capacity to induce and modulate specific types of immune responses; however, there is still a lack of resolution and deep understanding of dendritic cell subset functional specialization. This gap in knowledge is an impediment for the rational design of immune interventions. Our research program focuses on advancing our understanding of mouse and human dendritic cell subsets, revealing their endowed capacity to induce distinct types of immune responses, and designing novel strategies to exploit them for vaccines and therapies.

Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature and of Medicine (General Medical Disciplines)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsIkoku's research traces confluences in science and literature that have long constituted modern medical and ethics discourse — dating from the mid-nineteenth century to the present period, and particularly where Africa and its diaspora are points of representation
His scholarship has thus been in three areas. First, work that details the place of colonial, postcolonial, and world literatures in the evolution of tropical medicine and global health as medical fields, with writing on malaria and Africa as a primary focus. His current book, Forms of Global Health, and a forthcoming article, 'Reading Malaria Literature,' are part of this research, as is previous writing for the World Health Organization. Second, a series of long articles that detail efforts by writers of African descent to examine space, race and gender as genres of self-governance. And third, work that traces the emergence of modern fiction as an alternative mode for ethical thought regarding humane care and human subjects research. Here, he has published with Virtual Mentor as well as Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics, and he is developing a second book project on the Literature of Human Experimentation.
Finally, Ikoku's research has been supported by the Mellon Foundation, the American Council of Learned Societies, the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy, Columbia University Research Grants, the Marjorie Hope Nicolson Fellowship, and the Rhodes Trust.
