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.

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.
