His postdoctoral work under Dr. Conforti focused mainly on how ion channels contribute to the ineffective immune surveillance by T lymphocytes in solid tumors. Specifically, his work focused on the response and adaptation of ion channels in T lymphocytes to the tumor microenvironment, especially to tumor hypoxia and increased concentrations of adenosine. His In addition to his research responsibilities, Dr. Chimote is passionate about mentoring young STEM students in the laboratory and about science communication and outreach.
