Daniela F. Quail, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor at the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Institute and the Department of Physiology at McGill University, and a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Tumor Microenvironment research.
She completed her Ph.D. (2008-2012) at the University of Western Ontario (London, ON) and then pursued her postdoctoral training (2012-2017) at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York (NY, USA). Her postdoctoral research focused on how the microenvironment impacts cancer progression and prognosis, with particular interest in the immune compartment. She contributed to a body of research characterizing the effects of the innate immune system during cancer progression, including the role of macrophages in brain tumors, and neutrophils in breast cancer metastasis. Since opening her lab in 2017 at McGill, Dr. Quail has built a research program focused on cancer immunology.
