Curtis Henry, PhD, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Henry is a member of the Cancer Immunology Research Program at Winship Cancer Institute.
Dr. Henry received his PhD from Wake Forest University School of Medicine where he conducted research focusing on understanding how cytokines regulate CD8+ T-cell mediated protective immunity. As a postdoctoral fellow and Research Instructor at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, his research focused on dissecting how aging-associated inflammation regulated hematopoiesis and leukemogenesis.
Dr. Henry's research seeks to determine how chronic inflammation shapes hematopoiesis, immunity, and leukemogenesis. Results from these studies will be applied to improving therapeutic responses in at risk populations including children who are overweight or obese and aged populations.
