The goal of this project is to explore the molecular mechanisms of cytotoxicity in natural killer (NK) cell and how to exploit the mechanics to potentially optimize cytotoxic cell therapies. This project arises from our ongoing work delineating how lytic granule positioning may impact the efficiency and effectiveness of NK cell killing and how we might intentionally control the mechanics of lytic granules.
