    BioDr. Haist is a clinician scientist who explores the tumor microenvironment of advanced skin cancer patients to identify predictive biomarkers and immunological signatures using single-cell multiplexing technologies. As a Ph.D. student, Dr. Haist investigated the role of tumor hypoxia and the adenosine system in patients with melanoma brain metastases treated with combined radiochemotherapy. Currently, Dr Haist is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Dr. Garry NolanĀ“s lab and comes with interest in multiplex technologies to analyze the organization of effective anti-tumor immune responses within the tumor microenvironment.

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in engineering and using tools which can capture the complex interactions of the immune system more holistically. Understanding the immune system at a systems level will be even more critical as we try to engineer it for therapy. This will enable unique innovations in therapies overcoming several challenges of current immunotherapies: (1) ineffective for a large subset of patients, (2) non-specific, causing immunocompromised or autoimmune states, (3) costly, (4) not well modeled or predicted by in vitro tests and animal models, and (5) treat symptoms rather than cure disease.
