Area of Responsibility:
Salvatore (Sam) Fiorenza is a hematologist and post-doctoral scientist within the Turtle Lab. He is interested in improving existing immunotherapies for blood cancers as well as creating new ones. He currently manages multiple projects including one which investigates how the epigenome of CAR-T cells affects CAR-T cell therapy outcome. In collaboration with the Walter Lab, Sam is also characterizing a novel CAR-T cell therapy for acute myeloid leukemia – a relatively common and unfortunately often fatal blood cancer.
