CCDD ID Epi Spring Seminar Series
May 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Talk title: Engineering the host-pathogen interface.
Presenter: Dr. Bryan Bryson, Assistant Professor of Biological Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
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.
About the series: Each spring, CCDD hosts an annual seminar series featuring talks from experts on the latest research in infectious disease epidemiology and modeling. The ID Epi Seminar Series aims to bring in speakers from various disciplines within infectious disease epidemiology, broadly defined to include the population biology of pathogens and other allied topics. Seminars will be held on Thursdays at 1pm ET between February 11th and May 6th with the exception of March 18th. Recordings of presentations will be made publicly available each week.
