I received the NSAUA grant for “Heat Shock Protein Vaccine Targeting Carbonic Anhydrase IX in Renal Cell Carcinoma”. I've continued to work on heat shock protein vaccines. I'm also working on studies to identify biomarkers to predict response to some of the targeted therapies in use for metastatic renal cell carcinoma. I am now funded by a K23 and a R01, both from the NCI/NIH.

The funding was critical for generating preliminary data, which has been used to write an R01 application that is currently under review.
