Kristina S. Burrack, Ph.D.

K burrack

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: Senior Scientist, Biothera, Minneapolis MN

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: Associate Professor, San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Dipartimento di Biotecnologie, Via Olgettina, 58, 20132 Milan, Italy


Sara Hamilton Hart, Ph.D.

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


Caridad Rosette, Ph.D.

c. rosette

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.

Current Position: Director of  Research & Development, Bellatrix Pharmaceuticals, San Diego CA


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
