Research Interest

Dr Jin Seon Im investigating immunoregulation in allogeneic stem cell transplantation and tumor immunology. Long term goal is to 1) identify a novel mechanism of immune-regulation by iNK T cells to maintain a finel balance between Graft versus Host disease (GVHD) and Graft versus Tumor effects, and anti-viral immunity post transplantation, 2) to develop iNK T cell based cellular therapy for patients undergoing allogeneic stem cell transplantation to reduce post=transplantation complications including GVHD, relapse, and viral infections, and 3) to investigate the role of T cell mediated immunity in hematologic malignancies and solid tumor.
