Patty Grace

Postdoctoral Fellow
SPH 1, RM 802

Patty is Postdoctoral Fellow who is working towards understanding the action of antibodies in natural TB infection. She is working to address whether human antibodies from different TB disease states can confer control of Mtb growth or protection in a mouse model of Mtb infection. Patty works in between the labs of Sarah Fortune at HSPH and Galit Alter at the Ragon Institute.
