Tumor Immunology; Development of immunotherapeutic treatments for head and neck malignancies
Dr. Young Kim received his MD and PhD at University of California, San Diego, and completed his clinical training at University of California, Los Angeles.
His clinical interests include the medical and surgical management of head and neck tumor/cancer, thyroid/parathyroid tumors, and salivary gland tumors.
He also specializes in complex airway management and nasal reconstruction. He is currently the principle investigator of an NIH funded lab that is focused on the development of translational cancer vaccines.
His lab is focused on tumor immunology and the development of novel immunotherapeutic strategies for cancer patients. Within the tumor microenvironment, we are studying the cross-talk between the tumor cells and the tumor infiltrating lymphocytic and myeloid cells.
