Welcome to the lab of Kim E. Nichols, MD
The Nichols laboratory focuses on identifying and studying genes that protect against cancer and viral infections, and on understanding how genetic defects in the immune system can contribute to disease. Working in concert with Dr. Nichols’ clinical research efforts, our goal is to increase awareness, facilitate diagnosis and improve the treatment of patients at increased genetic risk for infection and cancer.
Current research areas in the lab include understanding the genetic underpinnings of immunological disorders, such as X-linked lymphoproliferative disease (XLP) and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). We are also developing novel cell-based immunotherapies for cancer.
There are currently multiple openings at the staff and postdoctoral level. Contact Kim Nichols for more information.
