Tao Sun, PhD

Research Scientist I, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

As a molecular biologist by training, my career in cancer research started when I did my postdoc research in neuro-oncology at Washington University in St Louis following a two-year adventure in the biotech industry. At that time, my main work was focused on understanding the sex differences in brain tumor biology. At Cedars-Sinai, I am currently developing an immunotherapy for the treatment of solid tumors, such as glioblastoma. I am also interested in exploring the ability of our immune system to modify the progression of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease.
