Dr. Redmond joined the Earle A. Chiles Research Institute, a Providence Center of Excellence for immuno-oncology and cellular therapy, in 2004 as a post-doctoral fellow. Currently, he leads the Cancer Immunotherapy Lab and the Immune Monitoring Lab. Dr. Redmond’s research seeks to understand how immunotherapy with T cell agonists, checkpoint inhibitors, cytokines, and other novel agents synergize to augment anti-tumor immunity. Additionally, he seeks to identify biomarkers of response to treatment that may provide insight into how immunotherapy improves outcomes for patients with advanced malignancies.

Dr. Redmond is also an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at Oregon Health & Science University.

Cancer Immunotherapy Lab

The Cancer Immunotherapy Lab’s goal is to determine how immunotherapy with T cell agonists, such as anti-OX40; common gamma chain cytokines, such as interleukin-2; and immune checkpoint blockade, such as anti-PD-1 and anti-CTLA-4; synergize with therapies - including galectin-3 inhibitors, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and/or tumor-specific vaccines - to boost T cell function and cause tumor regression. Ultimately, understanding how immunotherapies enable tumor-reactive T cells to destroy tumors will help guide the development of novel and more effective cancer therapies.
