Therese Cordero Dumit


Therese received her B.S. in Neuroscience and B.A. in Psychology from the Johns Hopkins University. During her time there, she joined Dr. Michael Lim's  neuro-oncology lab to explore the phenomenon known as the abscopal effect in a melanoma murine model. Her passion for cancer immunology deepened after a summer internship at MIT where she studied dendritic cells and their ability to cross-present tumor-derived peptides in Dr. Stefani Spranger's lab. Outside of lab, Therese enjoys viewing the world upside down as she headstands, baking some baklava among other concoctions, FaceTiming her 5-year-old brother, and spending time with her feisty cats Simon and Theo.
