Welcome to Dr. Chang H. Kim's Immunology & Hematopoiesis Lab

The mission of our laboratory is to advance our understanding of immune regulatory mechanisms, which is key to promote immunity and prevent tissue inflammation and cancer. Another important mission is to train future research leaders in immunology. The laboratory investigates fundamental aspects of lymphocyte development, trafficking, and effector functions in the hematolymphoid system.
