Engineering the host-pathogen interface (ID Epi Seminar Series)
May 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Dr. Bryon’s interests lie at the intersection of infectious disease, innate immunity and systems biology. At his lab, he develops biochemical and computational tools to decipher macrophage function during infection and across a variety of diseases and states to understand the generalizable molecular features that govern innate immune function. Dr. Bryson obtained an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering and a PhD in biological engineering at MIT. He then went on to pursue postdoctoral training with Sarah Fortune at the Harvard School of Public Health where he became interested in understanding how to leverage modern approaches in biological engineering to contribute to our understanding of tuberculosis pathogenesis.
