Dr. Munir Rahim

The Rahim lab is interested in understanding the contribution of activating and inhibitory receptors belonging to the NKR-P1 receptor family in the regulation of NK cell function, and in immunity against cancers and virus infections.

The primary focus of the lab is:

  1. Understanding the role of NKR-P1:Clr interactions in cancer immunosurveillance and immunoevasion in mouse tumour models.

  2. Understanding the role of NKR-P1 receptors in immunity against cytomegalovirus infection.
