We study how immune responses are regulated within injured and infected tissues. The Bollyky lab is a part of the Division of Infectious Disease and Geographic Medicine at Stanford University.
Congratulations all around the Bollyky lab this summer!
Liz Burgener received a Child Health Research Institute (CHRI) Clinical Trainee Grant for studying phage titers and clinical outcomes in Cystic Fibrosis patients.
Ben Danielson received a T32 Immunology Training Grant for continuing his postdoctoral work.
Koshika Yadava received a Child Health Research Institute (CHRI) Postdoctoral Award for her work in potentiating tolerance to allergens in asthma.
