Jordi Ochando, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Oncological Sciences and Director of the Flow Cytometry CoRE at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. The Ochando laboratory investigates the origin, development, and immune function of macrophages in organ transplantation. His laboratory has recently discovered that trained immunity represents a previously unrecognized pathway that mediates allograft rejection. To prevent the detrimental effects of trained macrophages, the Ochando laboratory uses a novel revolutionary targeted therapeutic delivery approach in which drug-loaded nanobiologics that specifically target macrophages in vivo and induce long-term allograft acceptance. This research represents a compelling framework for developing novel targeted therapies that promote immunological tolerance.
