The IFI celebrated the new Immunology T32 recipients with a reception on Wednesday, August 30th. Congratulations to Zena Del Mundo, Shannon Geels, Karl Liboro, Zach Wagoner and Hannah Debray (Immunology Fellowship Recipient). Please click read more to see photos from the event.
Congratulations to Alex Moshensky (Marangoni Lab) on his newly funded F31 through NIAMS! His project “Disentangling the Epidermal Immune Crosstalk in Inflammatory Skin Disease” looks at excessive neutrophil recruitment due to a skin-specific knockout of OVOL1 in response to damage to the skin. This is a collaborative effort with Dr. Xing Dai.
Speakers include:Mark Davis (USA)Antonio Lanzavecchia (Switzerland)Federica Sallusto (Switzerland)Yasmin Belkaid (USA)Mark Anderson (USA)Michael Lenardo (USA)Jean-Laurent Casanova (USA) Program and registration information available here.
Immunity to pathogenic fungi in the eye
A recent study published in the Journal of Virology by a team from the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry that includes Assistant Professor Roberto Tinoco, graduate student Julia DeRogatis and co-authors from the Tinoco lab, and Assistant Professor Dequina Nicholas has revealed a new discovery about how T cells respond to viral infections. The…

Rachel won a Graduate Research Fellowship sponsored by the National Science Foundation, a major nationwide academic achievement. Her proposal is entitled “The development of a spatiotemporal mathematical model of tumor-immune dynamics to investigate the mechanisms of tumor escape and control” and is one of only six project in Mathematical Biology funded this year in the US.
