Biography

Dr. Gregory Ehx is a permanent principal investigator of the F.R.S.-FNRS and head of the Translational Immunology & Leukemia group in the lab of Hematology (GIGA Institute). His research focuses on the interaction between leukemic and immune cells to understand how to promote immunity against acute myeloid leukemia (AML). His collaboration with Claude Perreault (IRIC - UMontreal) has resulted in the discovery of immunogenic, tumor-specific MHC-I epitopes in AML. Such antigens may help in developing a vaccine against this aggressive type of cancer. He has also created a software, BamQuery, to discover vaccination targets in any type of malignancy, highlighted the deleterious impact of autophagy on hypomethylating agents treatment, and worked extensively on humanized mouse models and regulatory T cells during his Ph.D. thesis.
