Laboratory Erika Pearce

Research in our laboratory focuses on understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms that control immune responses, with a particular emphasis on how metabolism governs this process. Currently our work is focused on the role of metabolism in regulating memory T cell development and effector T cell function. My laboratory is committed to using a wide variety of approaches to address key questions in immune cell metabolism in vitro and in vivo, and how this impacts protective immunity to infection and cancer. We hope that our work will allow us to develop new ways to target T cell longevity and function through metabolism, with a long-term goal of mitigating human disease.
