The Kast Lab's 2015 Beyond Exceptional Research Drive

Benefiting the Research of Dr. W. Martin Kast

Kast Lab

Named after and lead by our fearless leader, W. Martin Kast, we are a group of scientists that are focused on research involving immunology, virology, and the treatment of several cancers. Utilizing a wide variety of techniques including advanced cell culture, cellular immunology, molecular biology, immunochemistry, and immunohistochemistry we push forward the understanding of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) life-cycle from viral entry to immune evasion. Additionally we study the effects of the tumor-microenvironment on the immune system in order to develop successful immunotherapies for the treatment of different cancers.

The Kast Lab is proud to be a part of The University of Southern California and The Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center.  USC Norris is part of the Keck School of Medicine of USC and University of Southern California and uses USC’s Federal Tax ID Number: 95-1642394.  Make your donation using the button below.
