My laboratory studies the natural killer (NK) cell and the molecules that control its ability to recognize and kill cancer and virally infected cells. Improved understanding of how NK cells behave is critical to advancing our ability to harness their innate capacity for tumor recognition and eradication. Therefore, an important component of my research focuses on the basic biology of the NK cell, identifying the molecules involved in controlling NK reactivity, and determining the laboratory and clinical conditions under which NK activity can be modified.

Disclosures

Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.

MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.

Katharine C. Hsu discloses the following relationships and financial interests:

  • American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT)
    Fiduciary Role/Position
  • Wugen, Inc.
    Provision of Services (uncompensated)

The information published here is for a specific annual disclosure period. There may be differences between information on this and other public sites as a result of different reporting periods and/or the various ways relationships and financial interests are categorized by organizations that publish such data.
