Our lab begins December 1, 2019.


Our research program is well-funded and we have openings for several trainees at all levels. We celebrate the diversity of all our junior investigators. We value mentorship and team science.

Graduate Students

We welcome Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D. and Master's students from the Rutgers School of Graduate Studies. A number of projects are available spanning microbiology to immunology and experimental to computational biology. We will work together in identifying projects of mutual interest and a training plan towards equipping you for your research. The most important quality we seek in our graduate students is the eagerness to learn and work as part of a team.

We are admitting rotation students starting December 2019.
