Henrique Borges da Silva

Dr. Henrique Borges da Silva is an Assistant Professor at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. His main research focus is determining how the extracellular nucleotide, extracellular ATP (eATP), affects transcriptional, metabolic, and functional mechanisms of CD8-positive T cells in response to viral infections and cancer. This stems from fundamental discoveries made by Dr. Borges da Silva that showed a crucial role for the eATP purinergic receptor P2RX7 in the establishment of CD8-positive T cell memory.
