Kim Laboratory

Cancer vaccines have the potential to target tumors while sparing normal tissue. We are seeking strategies to stimulate the immune system to generate anticancer responses. We are also seeking biomarkers that can help determine prognosis and treatment response. An area of particular interest is using formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue to discover, validate and qualify novel biomarkers.
