JCCC SeminarDr. Erika Pearce

Presented by:
Erika Pearce, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, Department of Pathology and Immunology
Washington University

Dr. Erika Pearce's research focuses on the underlying molecular mechanisms that control the development of CD8 T cell memory, with a particular emphasis on how metabolism governs this process. Currently, her lab is investigating T cell bioenergetics, mitochondrial dynamics in T cells during infection, T cell substrate utilization, and the metabolic manipulation of T cells for enhancing the efficacy of immunotherapeutic and prophylactic vaccines.
