Daniel Michaud, PhD
Dr. Michaud's publications
Dr. Michaud received his Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Northeastern University in 2013. Upon graduation, he spent time as a research technician at the Belfer Center for Applied Cancer Science within Dana-Farber working on identifying new therapeutic targets for gastric cancer and preforming pre-clinical immunotherapy studies for non-small cell lung cancer.
He completed his doctoral studies in 2021 at the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. He worked with Dr. Yuliya Pylayeva-Gupta on characterizing the underlying mechanisms driving regulatory B cell function in the progression of pancreatic cancer.
Dan began his postdoctoral fellowship in the BTIL in 2021 with a focus on translational research. Broadly he is interested in how intercellular signaling between components of the tumor microenvironment affect the progression of tumors. He is particularly interested in evaluating B cell phenotypes in breast tumors and identifying targetable mechanisms that ultimately promote anti-tumorigenic B cell responses.
Interests Outside of Lab
Apart from research, Dan enjoys long distance running, hiking, snowboarding, and watching hockey.
