Andrew J. Rech

I am an MD/PhD student and Parker Scholar at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. I research basic and translational tumor immunology, using mouse models of cancer, patient tissue analysis and computational approaches to improve immune therapy for cancer. In the past, I have studied the immunobiology of radiation, regulatory T cells, tumor antigenicity, and resistance to immune checkpoint blockade.

My current research focus is employing novel computational strategies to understand the immunobiology of pancreatic cancer metastasis.
