About Priyanjali

Born and raised in India, I joined Dr. Issuree soon after finishing medical school at Jawaharl Nehru Medical College, India. My interest in immunology research led me to the Hawkeye state. Our lab aims to identify epigenetic factors responsible for the development and action of T cells. I plan to use this experience to continue solving mysteries in the field of immunology. Other than science, I spend my time doing yoga, solving puzzles, and painting.

About Kara

I am a PhD candidate in the Molecular Medicine program interested in host-pathogen interactions and elucidating mechanisms of basic cell biology. I am a former Iowa student-athlete from the Iowa City area and will forever be a Hawkeye! In my free time I enjoy being active outdoors, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
