Brian Kim Lab
About the Lab
The Kim Lab has unique expertise in basic approaches and techniques in innate immunity, neuroimmunology, and behavioral modelling of chronic itch. Additionally, we actively design translational, clinical research studies, and interventional clinical trials. Thus, we are able to provide state of the art guidance on everything from in vitro studies to phase 3 clinical trials to better understand cutaneous immunity, inflammation, and itch.
We have a diverse and multidisciplinary team immunologists, neuroscientists, and dermatologists have unique interests ranging from innate immunity and neuroimmunology to observational and interventional studies in the clinic.
