Portrait of Alyssa E. James, M.D.


Alyssa is a clinical fellow in Allergy and Clinical Immunology in NIAID who has a keen interest in immunogenetics and primary atopic disorders. She is currently leading large multi-institute projects within the TAIU involved investigating pathogenic loss- and gain-of-function variants in OSMR - both in isolation and in combination with additional pathogenic variants leading to a digenic presentation. By characterizing the impacts on cellular and molecular signaling, she seeks to identify targeted therapies to treat patients with these related disorders.
