Kim Lab

Principal Investigator

Blood vessels undergo rapid functional and structural changes, known as angiogenesis and vascular remodeling in various pathologic conditions. The Kim lab’s primary focus includes:

Liver metastasis of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors
  1. Unraveling effective strategies to delay metastatic progression by modulating the tumor microenvironment, specifically by targeting the tumor vasculature.
  2. Investigating the role of vascular leakage in T-cell exclusion and tumor immune suppression.
  3. Understanding the contribution of blood-brain barrier disruption to the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
