Edy Kim Lab
#Our mission:
1) To figure out "the important stuff" in the immunology of disease by applying discovery methods (e.g., single-cell, spatial) to unique human biobanks.
2) Then validate mechanisms and therapies at the bench.
3) Then bring back to patients.

#Open positions: Looking to hire post-docs (immunology, bioinformatics, clinical/translational, bench).

#Clinical interests: I attend in the Brigham and Women's Hospital Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) and Pulmonary Clinic. I am Faculty Director of COVIDprotocols.org, our COVID-19 clinical guidelines.

#Research interests: Immuno-phenotyping human disease--cardiac arrest, pulmonary fibrosis (esp. rheumatoid arthritis(RA)-ILD).

#Translational: We run two clinical biobanks: The Cardiac Arrest Biobank and VATS (early lung disease biopsy) Biobank.

#Experimental: We run mouse models of cardiac arrest, sepsis and pulmonary fibrosis.

#Pharma collaboration: I lead the Biomarker/Target Discovery team in the MGB-Bayer Pulmonary Drug Discovery lab; and led the pulmonary fibrosis project in the Roche Fibroblast Network.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
