Jameson Lab Post Doctoral Fellow Alumni
Post Doctoral Fellows
Henrique Borges da Silva, Ph.D.
Fellowship dates: 2015-20
Research Emphasis: Dr. Borges da Silva made fundamental discoveries that showed a crucial role for the eATP purinergic receptor P2RX7 in the establishment of CD8-positive T cell memory.
Current Position: Senior Associate Consultant, Mayo Clinic Dept. of Immunology (AZ)
Kristina S. Burrack, Ph.D.
Fellowship dates: 2014-18
Research Emphasis: Investigated the pathogenesis of malaria and identified a therapy that prevents the fatal pathogenesis of cerebral malaria in mice by altering the pathogenic immune response.
Ross Fulton, Ph.D.
Fellowship dates: 2010-14
Research Emphasis: Studied the role of T cell homeostasis in generating effective immune responses to pathogens
Current Position: Principal Scientist, Merrimack, Cambridge, MA

Irlanda Olvera-Gomez, Ph.D.
Fellowship dates: 2008-2011
Research Emphasis: Evaluated the role of lymphopenia on memory CD8 T cell generation and function. Acute ablation of Langerhans cells enhances skin immune responses. and Cholera toxin activates nonconventional adjuvant pathways that induce protective CD8 T-cell responses after epicutaneous vaccination.
Current Position: Scientist at the Instituto Nacional de Perinatologia in Mexico City, Mexico

Sara Hamilton Hart, Ph.D.
Fellowship dates: 2003-8
Research Emphasis: The generation of protective memory-like CD8+ T cells during homeostatic proliferation requires CD4+ T cells., CD8(+) T cell differentiation: choosing a path through T-bet., and The nature of the lymphopenic environment dictates protective function of homeostatic-memory CD8+ T cells.
Current Position: Assistant Professor, Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, University of Minnesota
Contact Info: firstname.lastname@example.org
Janelle Olson, Ph.D.
Fellowship dates: 2009-13
Research Emphasis: Keeping STATs on memory CD8+ T cells., and Effector-like CD8⁺ T cells in the memory population mediate potent protective immunity.
Current Position: Senior Immunogenetic Specialist, Be The Match operated by National Marrow Donor Program, Minneapolis, MN

Kristin Renkema, PhD
Fellowship dates: 2014-18
Research Emphasis: Studied the killer cells of the adaptive immune system: CD8 T cells to understand how we can tweak the CD8 T cell response in order to generate the most potent, effective, and long-lasting immune responses against infections and cancer.
Current Position: Assistant Professor
Caridad Rosette, Ph.D.
Fellowship dates: 1996-2000
Research Emphasis: The impact of duration versus extent of TCR occupancy on T cell activation: a revision of the kinetic proofreading model.
Kensuke Takada, Ph.D.
Fellowship dates: 2007-2010
Research Emphasis: Kruppel-like factor 2 is required for trafficking but not quiescence in postactivated T cells., Naive T cell homeostasis: from awareness of space to a sense of place, Self-class I MHC molecules support survival of naive CD8 T cells, but depress their functional sensitivity through regulation of CD8 expression levels.
Current Position: Faculty Scientist, Division of Experimental Immunology, Institute for Genome Research, Takahama Lab, University of Tokushima, Tokushima, Japan
