Mentor: Blish Lab

I am a Postdoc at the Stanford Pandemic Preparedness Hub, working with Catherine Blish in the Department of Medicine – Division of Infectious Diseases & Geographic Medicine. We are using experimental and computational methods to investigate how the immune response to coronaviruses begins in the first hours following infection in single cells. This work will enable us to understand how protective immune responses develop to coronavirus infection and identify shared features of host responses that can be targeted for therapeutic intervention for the next coronavirus pandemic.
