Julia Gross is a graduate student in the NIH GPP/Emory IMP program. She hails from San Francisco, CA, where she studied as an undergrad at Brown University in Providence, RI, and currently lives in Washington D.C. while working on her thesis at NIAID. Her project is centered on understanding how different types of antibiotic treatments impact patients’ immune responses to bacterial infections. More broadly she is interested in research on innate immune signaling writ large as well as anything and everything to do with understanding and combatting the increasing threat of antimicrobial resistant bacteria. Outside the lab Julia can be found performing improv comedy, reading novels, and knitting.
