Jyothsna Ramesh Kumar

Graduate Assistant-Research

Biology has always fascinated me, and the various projects I have had the opportunity to work on under the guidance of amazing scientists in premier institutes back in India have helped me discover my passion for research and the field of immunology. I am currently a graduate student in Dr Ryan Smith's lab, and am working on mosquito innate immunity. I am looking to study their immune cells, characterize them and investigate their interactions with viral pathogens. I also am keen to look into other aspects of host pathogen interaction in the mosquito host.
