    Claire Gustafson

    Instructor, Medicine - Immunology & Rheumatology

    BioMy current research focuses in determining the underlying causes of T cell dysfunction in older individuals - utilizing high dimensional dataset analysis in combination with the development of new model systems to expand mechanistic studies in humans. In particular, I am interested in (1) the interplay between the tissue microenvironment and T cell homeostasis during the aging process and (2) the role of post-transcriptional regulation in modulating T cell function during infection, vaccination and with age.
