Professor of Pathology, Medicine and Oncology
The Johns Hopkins Institute for Cell Engineering (ICE)
Jonathan Schneck, M.D., Ph.D. is a professor of pathology with joint appointments in medicine and oncology, and a member of The Johns Hopkins Institute for Cell Engineering (ICE).
Dr. Schneck’s research focuses on the basic mechanisms that control immune responses. Specifically, he studies how cytotoxic T-cells, known as killer T cells—cells that help eliminate infections or cancers—get activated, recognize their targets, and how they get turned off again. The Schneck lab focuses on how to manipulate the immune system with the hopes of designing improved anti-cancer therapies by ramping up the immune system, or treating autoimmune disease and transplant patients with better immune system suppression.
He received his M.D. and Ph.D. from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
