The Kohn Lab

The Kohn lab is focused on developing new therapies for genetic diseases of blood cells, using gene therapy methods to correct hematopoietic stem cells (HSC).  The lab performs basic studies on gene transfer, expression and immune responses, and translates the findings to clinical trials.  This research program provides a highly multi-disciplinary training environment for graduate and medical students and PhD and MD post-doctoral fellows.
