Welcome to the Prakash Lab at UCSF.


We are an immunology lab focused on innate immune mechanisms and inflammation seen in critical illness.


We work closely with the Hellman Laboratory also in the Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care at UCSF.


​We are interested in the interface between sterile and infectious inflammation as it pertains to patients with severe trauma, hemorrhage, and complicated hospital courses.


We are a young lab that is growing and expanding.


San Francisco and the Bay Area in general is a wonderful place to live and work.  The scientific community at UCSF is unparalleled.
