The Kiem Lab studies cell and gene therapy with a particular interest in the biology of blood and marrow stem cells and the development and use of novel gene therapy and genome editing technologies for ex vivo and in vivo applications. The overall goal is to develop better stem cell transplantation and cell and gene therapy treatments for patients with genetic, infectious, and malignant diseases.
In alignment with the Fred Hutch’s stated vision to lead the integration of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as core values, principles, and practices to advance the Hutch’s mission of eliminating cancer and related diseases, the Kiem Lab works to promote these values in all levels of work in the lab.
