Researcher | Research Overview

Dr. Cuenca is a pediatric and transplant surgeon that is interested in novel strategies to induce solid organ transplant tolerance. As the innate immune response is at the nexus both inflammatory and immunosuppressive responses, he believes that innate immunity can be trained to induce allograft tolerance to reduce the overall burden of immunosuppressive regimens on patients. In addition, he is interested in developing adjuvants and/or vaccines that could be used to stimulate the expansion of immunosuppressive myeloid populations to promote tolerance in classic solid organ transplant models.
