Research Associate, Immunobiology

Jennifer Uhrlaub received a BA from McDaniel College and a Masters in Biotechnology from Johns Hopkins University. She has been with the Nikolich Lab since 2005 working on a diverse array of projects to understand immune determinants of increased susceptibility to acute viral infection with age. One of her favorite things about Tucson is entertaining on her patio in the middle of “winter”.
