Kamir Hiam-Galvez

Kamir Hiam-Galvez is a postdoctoral scholar in the Satpathy lab. His research aims to understand how the immune system makes decisions. Specifically, he focuses on dissecting how dendritic cells influence clonal T cell differentiation trajectories. He holds a BA in Psychology from Brock University, a BSc in Biochemistry from Kennesaw State University, and a PhD in Biomedical Sciences from University of California, San Francisco. Kamir runs an annual “Immunology Crash Course” for high schoolers in the Bay Area. He volunteers as a mentor for prospective graduate students through CientĂ­fico Latino and Project Short, and was a founding member of UCSF’s Immunodiverse. He is now focusing on increasing science accessibility through Public Journal Club and new Spanish language science initiatives. Outside of the lab, Kamir is obsessed with music and you can often find him digging through dusty crates of vinyl records. He also loves fĂștbol, video games, and eating. Connect with Kamir: Twitter
