Fran Hakim has spent most of her research career at NIH. She completed her doctoral research analyzing a murine inflammatory arthritis model under Joost Oppenheim and her postdoctoral work on murine GVHD models under Gene Shearer. Joining the laboratory of Ron Gress, she focused on immune reconstitution of T and NK cells in the clinical transplant setting. Since 2005 she has headed a transplantation immunology research core facility supporting the clinical protocols of Experimental Transplantation and Immunology Branch, including novel trials on IL-7 therapy, T cell immunotherapy, and autologous transplantation for systemic lupus. Her primary research interests focus on immune reconstitution and chronic graft versus host disease.
