Peter Georgiev


Peter is a PhD student in the HMS Immunology program and is co-mentored between the Haigis and Sharpe laboratories. He is interested in understanding the metabolic determinants of effective anti-tumor immunity and metabolic usage of CD8T cells in the settings of cancer and aging. Previously Peter worked as an industry scientist at Merck Research Laboratories where he supported the pre-clinical development of several immunotherapeutic agents across the early discovery pipeline. In addition to immunometabolism, Peter is broadly interested in immune tolerance and cancer immunology.  When he is not doing science Peter enjoys spending time with his wife Tehya and daughter Sofia Belle.
