Priyadarshini Chatterjee

I am a 4th year Biochemistry student doing my part II Masters research project in the James lab. I am working with Dr Sally Cowley to help develop an iPSC-derived alveolar type 2 cell model to study pulmonary pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2.  I started out in research as a part of Dr Das’s lab at the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Sciences, following which I became more interested in immunology and infection, leading me to undertake research projects in Dr Greave’s lab and in Dr Schulze zur Wiesch’s lab, funded by the DAAD RISE Germany programme. Interested in infection, particularly viral infection, I hope to pursue a PhD in virology
