Chemical Biology Program
The Daniel Bachovchin Lab
The Bachovchin lab uses chemical and cell biology approaches to study important questions in innate immunity. We are particularly interested characterizing in the molecular mechanisms controlling the formation of inflammasomes, key components of the innate immune system that sense intracellular danger signals and trigger pyroptotic cell death.

Get in Touch
Doctors and faculty members often work with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology, and life sciences companies, and other organizations outside of MSK, to find safe and effective cancer treatments, to improve patient care, and to educate the health care community.
MSK requires doctors and faculty members to report (“disclose”) the relationships and financial interests they have with external entities. As a commitment to transparency with our community, we make that information available to the public.
Daniel Bachovchin discloses the following relationships and financial interests:
