Minah Kim

Minah Kim, Ph.D. Assistant Professor Columbia University Research Interests: The research in my lab is broadly focused to understand how vascular abnormalities contribute to disease progression and drug resistance in diverse pathological conditions, including cancer. Specifically, we aim to determine 1) the role of vascular abnormalities in T-cell exclusion and resistance to immunotherapies; 2) the…
