I joined the Roncarolo/Bacchetta research team recently after my undergraduate studies at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB). I was introduced to T cell immunology here at Stanford, having had previous experiences with whole-exome analysis and molecular techniques at the Children’s Hospital Orange County Heme/Onc research, and stem cell culture and enzymology at the CSULB Biochemistry Dept. This earlier work has been helpful in developing a CD4+ T helper and T regulatory focused mass cytometric assay for the phenotypic analysis of these cells in health and during immune dysregulation. Bioinformatics plays a large role in our current work to understand the comprehensive changes in frequency and function of these CD4+ T cell subsets, and to pin-point specific features associated with immune-mediated disease.
