My name is Stephanie Boisson-Dupuis and I am an Associate Professor at the Rockefeller University. My research focuses on human genetics of infectious diseases, specifically exploring genetic susceptibility to tuberculosis (TB). I believe TB is not only an infectious disease, but also a genetic disorder. Thus, I am dedicated to uncovering the critical elements necessary for a strong immune response to TB, in order to provide or help to develop more effective treatments and preventive strategies for the disease.
