Stanford University, Immunology
Fellowship Sponsor: American Physiological Society
Fellowship Site: STAT
I am a PhD student in immunology at Stanford. In the lab, I study the small, short-lived epithelial cells that line the small intestine. It turns out that these cells do more than absorb nutrients from your food and can interact with the immune system in important ways. My research is about understanding those interactions.
Outside the lab, I write and host for the Goggles Optional podcast and contribute to a student-run science blog. For years, I've had a nagging thought that, if I hadn't gone into science, I would have pursued journalism. I've learned to embrace both of these passions through science journalism, and am excited to spend this summer in Boston as an intern for STAT.
