This position is responsible for providing technical laboratory support for biomedical research projects performing both routine and non-routine lab procedures. The Harrison Lab works to understand the mechanisms controlling host-microbe interactions at barrier sites such as the skin and gastrointestinal tract.
We study how our resident commensal microbes influence the development, education and function of our immune system. To do so, we utilize a multi-disciplinary approach combining development and implementation of tools to track commensal-specific T and B cells in healthy and inflamed tissues, with single-cell and population level transcriptomics and epigenetic analyses of T and B cell differentiation to investigate how the host mounts and regulates immunity to the microbiome.
