Jared is a pediatric hematology-oncology fellow at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital. He completed his MD-PhD at the University of Minnesota. His thesis research, in the laboratory of Dr. Sing Sing Way, identified the impacts of prenatal infection on maternal-fetal immunologic tolerance. He then completed pediatric residency training in the Boston Combined Residency Program at Boston Children’s Hospital and Boston Medical Center. During residency, in the laboratory of Luigi Notarangelo, he studied how biasing of the T cell repertoire in patients with primary immune deficiencies leads to paradoxical autoimmunity exhibited by these patients. His project in the Sharpe lab will focus on how metabolic programming of tumor specific T cells can augment their ability to control cancer. Outside of the lab he enjoys spending time with his wife and 2 crazy boys going hiking, camping, and repeatedly/obsessively watching Pixar movies.
