Dr. Vanya Bhushan earned her Ph.D. from National Dairy Research Institute in 2022 and joined the Nita-Lazar lab in spring 2023. Her project at NIAID focuses on quantifying cellular protein abundance changes within subcellular compartments of host innate immune cells upon time course challenge with PAMPs/Vita-PAMPs from viable/non-viable whole cells, with activation of complex TLR/PRR signaling networks and their cross talk. Her interest primarily lies in quantitative mass spectrometry approaches to study cell signaling mechanisms.
