Research Assistant Professor 
University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine 
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Dr. Bruno obtained her doctorate in immunology from Johns Hopkins University and completed her postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Colorado, both with a focus in tumor immunology. While Dr. Bruno’s PhD training focused on inhibitory receptors on intratumoral T cells, she became interested in tumor infiltrating B cells during her postdoctoral fellowship and has built her independent research program around understanding their function in multiple human cancers, in particular, lung and head and neck cancers. She is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Immunology at the University of Pittsburgh and a faculty member in the Tumor Microenvironment Center at the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center.
