About Translocation of Complex Macromolecules Across the Intestinal Epithelial Barrier (TMI)
The main objective of the research group TMI, headed by Dr. Kyungbo Kim, is to discover novel transport mechanisms in the human intestinal tract which could be utilized for oral-systemic delivery of diverse therapeutic modalities (e.g., peptides, oligonucleotides, and antibodies). Studies will involve isolating intestinal cells, generating intestinal organoids from murine and human subjects, and creating a organotypic assay system of the intestine. The project’s cores are to develop a ligand specific for a target cell and establish quantitative assessment methods to monitor macromolecular drug delivery across the intestinal epithelial barrier. Our final goal is to create a novel delivery platform, which can be utilized for the development of a new generation of oral immunotherapies to benefit patients.
We are looking for highly enthusiastic researcher with a strong background in immunology (innate immunity).
