Shweta Joshi, PhD

I am currently an Assistant Professor at UCSD and the Moores Cancer Center. I received my Ph.D. from Central Drug Research Institute, Lucknow, India. Following the completion of my Ph.D., I joined postdoc at the University of California, San Diego. During the postdoctoral fellowship, my research was focussed on finding novel signaling pathways in macrophages that mediate tumor growth and immunosuppression. In 2015, I joined as a Project Scientist at the University of California, San Diego. In 2019, I joined as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics, UCSD. I am an expert in cancer immunology and my research is focused on elucidating the interactions of macrophages with growing tumors. My lab is focused on finding novel macrophage-targeted therapies for the treatment of cancer.
