Fatima Rivera-Escalera, Ph.D.
Investigation of cellular mechanisms and immunologic consequences of efferocytosis and antibody-dependent phagocytosis by tissue-resident macrophages in vitro and in relevant mouse models of disease
“I would like to continue my career in biomedical research either as a principal investigator in academia or as a scientist in industry.”
Investigating the role of the ATP/UTP receptor P2Y2 in cell migration, HIV-1 infection and apoptotic cell clearance.
“I have a strong interest in college level teaching and have gained a great deal of classroom experience through the pre-college program at the University of Rochester. For more information, please visit my teaching ePortfolio.
