Job title: Head Tumor Immunology
D. Olive has been a pioneer and leader in the co-signalling field since 1990. His work is dedicated to tumor immunology with a major emphasis on innate immunity and co-signalling molecules.
Selected major breakthroughs: 1) Identification of signaling pathways involved in CD28 and ICOS costimulatory molecules; 2) Demonstration that BTN3A1/CD277 is a major inducer of Vg9Vd2 response; 3) identification of the function of BTLA and HVEM in the regulation of immune function; 4) Identification of molecular mechanisms associated to NK cells impairment in AML patients; 5) first identification of alteration of NK cells in the tumor bed in breast and prostate cancer; 6) First in man clinical trial using anti-KIR mAbs in AML patients; 7) Deciphering of of ICOS ICOSL interaction in the regulation of Tregs in lymphomas.
He is cofounder of Imcheck Therapeutics, Emergence Therapeutics and Alderaan.
