Dr. Minkah is a scientist at the Center for Global Infectious Disease Research at Seattle Children’s Research Institute and an Assistant Professor in the department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington. His group aims to understand how hepatic innate immunity can be harnessed to improve immune-directed therapies against liver disease and globally relevant hepatotropic pathogens. Additionally, the Minkah lab aims to foster an inclusive and welcoming research environment where each person feels valued and respected to do impactful work.

We are always looking for talented individuals to join our group!
