Investigating activity of nucleic acid sensing pathways in the context of DNA damage and designing rational immuno-oncology combination treatment approaches
Dr Parkes trained at Queens University Belfast, completing her oncology fellowship training at the Northern Ireland Cancer Centre. During her training she was awarded a CRUK clinical fellowship, and completed her DPhil in the Kennedy lab, studying the immune consequences of DNA repair deficiency. During this time she discovered constitutive STING signaling in DNA repair deficient cancers. She now focuses on understanding how to exploit the consequences of STING signaling for clinical benefit.
