Welcome to the Haldar Laboratory!
Haldar Laboratory is part of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, the Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute, and the Institute for Immunology in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Research in our laboratory is at the intersection of innate immune system and solid tumor biology. Specifically, we study the mononuclear phagocyte system (MPS) with an emphasis on their role in the tumor microenvironment. We utilize advanced genetically engineered mouse models, patient-derived samples, high-dimensional immune and genomic profiling, etc. to address key questions in MPS biology. Our overarching goal is to manipulate the differentiation and function of MP cells for therapeutic purposes.
