For Patients:
Dr. Lee-Sherick is a Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant specialist at Children's Hospital Colorado. Dr. Lee Sherick's primary research focus is to harness the immune system to more effectively cure acute leukemia. The Lee Sherick lab explores the role that tolerogenic macrophages and dendritic cells play in immune evasion of leukemia and how this can be reversed. One such approach is by inhibiting efferocytosis by blocking phosphatidyl serine receptors (such as MerTK) on macrophages and dendritic cells, which results in an anti-tumor microenvironment and decreases immune evasion. The hope is that the knowledge gained from this research can be used to develop novel immunotherapeutic approaches to treat acute leukemias.
For Referring Providers:
My research interest focuses on pediatric acute leukemias.
