Emily Goldberg, Principal Investigator

I was born and raised in Arizona. My research interests are all related to the dynamic interconnectedness of immunology and metabolism, and how this controls not only immune responses against infection, but also tissue function and metabolic health. When I'm not doing science I enjoy taking pottery classes, trying new restaurants, and spending time with my family.

Kyrlia Young, Junior Specialist

I am a Junior Specialist and joined the Goldberg lab in September 2020. Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, I graduated from Occidental College as a Biology major with an interest in Cell and Molecular Biology, as well as Microbiology. As an undergrad, I worked under the guidance of Cheryl Okumura to develop a method to isolate and purify Group A Strep-infected phagosomes. My research sought to conduct a proteomics study to identify proteins associated with bacterial survival and immune evasion. In my free time, I love hiking, cooking new dishes, and baking!
