Name: Brown, Julia
Year you started at ISMMS: 2014
Program: PhD      MTA: MIC


Why you chose ISMMS?

I chose ISMMS because of the sheer variety of research in my area of interest (virology) and because of the uniquely supportive and collaborative nature of the Microbiology Department.

Lab: Jean Lim


Studying the transmission and pathogenesis of Zika virus using in vivo and ex vivo models

Undergrad institution and major: California Institute of Technology, Biology

What did you do between college and grad school?

What do you like to do outside of school?

Outside the lab, I sing with the ISMMS student choir, which performs regularly for patients; run events for Aces NYC, a discussion and support group for asexual and aromantic people in the greater New York area; and play board games – the more complicated, the better.
