Sonja Schrepfer, MD, PhD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Vascular & Cardiac Biology
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Immunology
Research Summary: 
We are molecularly modifying pluripotent stem cell lines to create non-immunogenic cells that are protected from post-transplant rejection without affecting the general immune system.

Joseph Bondy-Denomy, PhD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Virology & Microbial Pathogenesis
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Immunology
Research Summary: 
CRISPR-Cas immunity and anti-immunity

Joel Ernst, MD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Immunology
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Virology & Microbial Pathogenesis
Research Summary: 
We study T cell immunity to tuberculosis (TB). In mice, we characterize mechanisms of CD4 T cell evasion in TB, and we study humans to discover mechanisms that provide protective immunity to TB that can be improved by vaccines.

Robert Raffai, PhD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Vascular & Cardiac Biology
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Immunology
Research Summary: 
Our program explores the impact of metabolic stress on deregulated micro-RNA controlled hematopoiesis and immune cell function in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, including through intercellular signaling via exosomes

Erin Gordon, MD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Human Genetics
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Immunology
Research Summary: 
Determine the molecular mechanisms and causal variants of asthma-associated genetic loci.

Nadia Roan, PhD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Virology & Microbial Pathogenesis
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Immunology
Research Summary: 
The Roan Lab is interested in studying how cells and secretions of the mucosa, particularly the genital mucosa, can affect immunity, infection by HIV, and reproductive health.

Seemay Chou, PhD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Virology & Microbial Pathogenesis
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Immunology
Research Summary: 
Molecular and structural basis of host–microbe interactions

Timothy Henrich, MD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Virology & Microbial Pathogenesis
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Immunology
Research Summary: 
Immunmodulatory, cytoreductive chemotherapeutic and stem cell transplantation approaches to HIV-1 cure. Design and implementation of novel nano/microtechnologies to characterize viral reservoirs.

Tiffany Scharschmidt, MD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Immunology
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Virology & Microbial Pathogenesis
Research Summary: 
Immune mechanisms that support host-commensal symbiosis

Atul Butte, MD, PhD

Primary Thematic Area: 
Human Genetics
Secondary Thematic Area: 
Immunology
Research Summary: 
Dr. Butte builds and applies tools that convert more than 400 trillion points of molecular, clinical, and epidemiological data into diagnostics, therapeutics, and new insights into disease.
