PhD Candidate in Microbiology, Virology and Parasitology
Investigating the role of Staphylococcus aureus strain-level diversity on neutrophil recruitment and wound healing in a cutaneous leishmaniasis infection
“We are incredibly proud of Tori on her F31 award from NIAMS! This award will allow her to dissect the role of the bacterial pathogen, S. aureus, in mediating immunopathology during skin infection and wound healing after infection with the Leishmania parasite. These studies have great promise for the understanding and treatment of this neglected tropical disease. Tori’s dedication and passion, as well as her creativity and collaborative spirit are truly inspiring to all of us!
