Javier Rangel-Moreno, Ph.D.

Rangel-Moreno earned his bachelor degree in Chemistry, Bacteriology and Parasitology (1997) and his Ph. D in Immunology  (2002) from the National School of Biological Sciences, National Polytechnic Institute in Mexico. To get his Ph. D in immunology, he disserted about the role of PGE2 in a model of experimental pulmonary tuberculosis. In 2002, he moved to the laboratory of Dr. Troy D Randall, where he concentrated on the role of lymphotoxin alpha and homeostatic chemokines in the formation and function of the inducible bronchus associated lymphoid tissue (iBALT) and the nose associated lymphoid tissue (NALT). In 2009, he moved to the James P Wilmot Cancer Center to continue investigating how homeostatic chemokines can influence the course of local immune responses in the respiratory tract and how they are involved in the organization and function of specialized lymphoid tissues and ectopic structures in diverse anatomical locations.
