Dr. Won Jin Ho is a physician-scientist at Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins who focuses on cancer immunology and tumor microenvironment research.
Dr. Ho received his BS and MS in Biomedical Engineering from University of California, Los Angeles, and his MD from Wayne State University School of Medicine. Dr. Ho completed a research track internal medicine residency as an NIH F32 postdoctoral fellow at Case Western Reserve University and subsequently completed a medical oncology fellowship at Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins as the recipient of ASCO Young Investigator Award and AACR Immuno-Oncology Fellowship.
Dr. Ho's overarching research interest is to develop novel immunotherapeutic strategies even against immune-resistant cancers by first understanding the immune responses to current therapeutics. Dr. Ho focuses on determining the systemic and in situ changes by leveraging cutting-edge technologies. With his expertise in mass cytometry, Dr. Ho is co-leading many of the systemic and spatial immune profiling efforts at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Ho also is developing novel small-molecule cancer therapeutics and methodologies for translational discovery.
