Kelsey Wells

Kelsey Wells joined the de Figueiredo lab in May, 2017.  She wants to understand and shine the light on pathogens that either have evolved to manipulate their host (e.g., intracellular bacteria and viruses) or are relatively unknown.  Along with this interest, Kelsey wants to understand how the host has evolved to counteract these pathogens, and how we can find ways to help the host combat disease.
