About Our Lab
The Kim Laboratory is interested in understanding the pleiotropic actions of hormones, in particular, progesterone and their role in reproductive diseases including Endometrial Cancer, Breast Cancer and Uterine Fibroids. With the understanding of how progesterone acts at the molecular level in various contexts allows us to identify and test novel approaches to prevent or treat diseases. We place important consideration in the appropriate in vitro and in vivo models that are used in our research and as a result have generated physiological systems that include 3D organ cultures and microfluidic platforms, as well as appropriate in vivo systems using patient derived xenografted tumors, and transgenic mice. The Kim Lab is wholeheartedly invested in research that will ultimately benefit women with reproductive diseases.
