Responsibilities

  • The Lab for Cellular Immunotherapy and Immunoengineering (LCII) led by Dr. Gloria Kim is in the Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering and the Department of Immunology at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science at Mayo Clinic. Our lab focuses on engineering immune cells and biomaterials to develop next-generation treatment options for patients with cancers and immune-related diseases. We invite you to join our mission to leverage our expertise in T-cell engineering, immunology, biomedical engineering, and material science to understand how immune cells work in health and disease while advancing biomedical technologies that can boost the ability of the immune system to prevent and treat human disease. We believe our biomedical research has great potential to be translated into the clinic and will have a direct impact on the well-being of patients. Mayo Clinic is a great place to conduct such bioengineering research and interact closely with clinicians to translate technologies.
