Kile Laboratory

Welcome to the Kile Lab

The Kile lab has a longstanding interest in the development, survival and function of blood cells. Using molecular approaches combined with state-of-the-art imaging technologies, we seek to understand the regulation of key processes like apoptosis at steady state, and in disease settings such as leukemia and inflammatory disease.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, and a member of the Development & Stem Cells and Infection & Immunity Programs and a member of the Department of Anatomy & Developmental Biology.

Our research

We are researching the molecules that underpin the formation and function of blood cells. Our major interests are:

- The regulation of fundamental processes, such as cell death.
- How these processes contribute to the development of leukaemia and inflammatory disease.
- Identifying new strategies to target these processes as treatments for diseases.
