Kim Laboratory


Our focus is to study how immune homeostasis in non-lymphoid tissue (such as mucosal area) is accomplished by T cells and what is the role of local environment (such as gut microbiota) in that process. With intestine as a model system, we will study how T cells migrate there, what type of antigens local T cells recognize, and what is the contribution of those local T cells in the gut immune responses.
