My interest lies in trying to understand immune cell regulation by their environment. My PhD focused on regulation of T cell function by nutrient availability. I am moving to the Buck lab to gain knowledge and experience into how host, viral and parasite RNA and mRNAs factor into immune responses. I believe by understanding how extrinsic factors can dictate immune cells will lead to avenues for therapeutic targeting and also help treat autoimmune diseases.
