Joshua Moreau is an Assistant Professor in CEDAR and the Division of Oncological Sciences. He aims to explore the earliest interactions between cancer and the immune system, within the tissues where cancer cells arise.  Josh completed his Ph.D. in Immunology at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and University of Toronto before moving to the University of California, San Francisco for a postdoc in tissue specific immunity with Dr. Michael Rosenblum. A major research focus is to understand how tissue resident lymphocytes in barrier organs integrate microenvironmental signals to orchestrate anti-cancer immunity. Combining multiomic approaches with functional immunology, this work investigates the basic biology of tissue resident lymphocytes and the role of these cells during cancer pathogenesis.
