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.
Mike works with Bioinformatics, data munging, analysis of Next-Generation Sequence data, and proteomics data. Perl, R and shell scripting.
Greg studies the interactions between Mycobacterium tuberculosis and cellular immunity, with an interest in mycobacterial protein secretion and its impacts on inflammation and immune recognition.
Jamie hopes to use his genetics training and varied lab experience to help the Fortune group to better understand the mechanisms behind Mtb infection and how these can be addressed.
Eddie is interested in the role antibodies play during tuberculosis infection. He is taking biased and unbiased approaches to identify specific characteristics of the humoral immune response capable of modulating infection or disease.
Xin leverages multiple techniques to study pathogenesis of M. tuberculosis.
Peter researches high-throughput RNA-Sequencing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains across various growth conditions to link genotype to phenotypic variation.
Sydney is interested in identifying the pathways stimulated by antibodies that promote macrophage-intrinsic restriction of Mycobacterium tuberculosis survival.
Wiktor’s research involves Fc glycosylation and how it impacts innate immune cell functionality.
Qingyun is studying the interaction between host and bacterial genotypes.
