Szun is interested in T cell immunity to cancer, infection and transplantation. She employs cellular, genetic, flow cytometry and real-time microscopy techniques to identify cues that govern T cell migration and function in vivo. She currently investigates T cell behaviour within lymphoid tissues and the tumour microenvironment.
