JCCC SeminarDr. Scott Kitchen

Presented by:
Scott Kitchen, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Departments of Medicine and Hematology/Oncology
Director, UCLA Mouse/Human Chimera Core Laboratory
Member, JCCC Tumor Immunology Program Area

Dr. Scott Kitchen’s research interests are focused on investigating the effects of viral infection, as well as other cellular abnormalities, on human hematopoiesis and on exploring ways to correct defects that exist in immunity to viral and cellular antigens. They are also interested in developing gene therapy-based approaches to engineer human hematopoietic stem cells to reconstitute and/or enhance immune responses following their development into mature cells that specifically target HIV infection.
