Marijke Keestra-Gounder, PhD

Assistant Professor

Elucidate pathways of innate immunity that can distinguish harmless microbes from pathogens, thereby enabling the host to mount responses that are commensurate with the threat.

Ju Sim Kim, PhD

Assistant Research Professor

Molecular mechanisms of antioxidant defenses against oxidative stress to protect Salmonella against inflammatory mediators of the innate host response.

Jared Klarquist, PhD

Assistant Research Professor


Our research focuses on B cell and CD8 T cell cross-talk. Specifically, we are investigating how B cells promote CD8 T cell responses to vaccines and how they contribute to naïve CD8 T cell homeostasis.

Mechanisms for regulation of innate immune cell function and inflammation; impact of these in the context of microbial infections and in other disease contexts; and therapeutic implications

Liyen Loh, PhD

Assistant Research Professor

Thomas E. Morrison, PhD

Professor 

Immunological mechanisms that influence the clearance or persistence of arboviruses and protozoan parasites; molecular mechanisms by which pathogens counteract host innate and adaptive immune responses

Kyla Ost, PhD 

Assistant Professor
