In my graduate studies I have developed technologies to deliver non coding RNA to lymphocyte subsets for therapeutic applications. I joined the Littman lab to obtain a better understanding of how the immune system fine tunes the appropriate reactions to altered stimuli. Specifically, I am interested in elucidating the contribution of antigen presenting cell subsets to specific T cell programs in the gut in response to diverse microbes.
