Position: Post-doctoral Fellow

email: youjin.lee [at]

I joined the Marson lab in 2015 as a post-doctoral fellow with the broad interest in T cell function in the context of autoimmunity. I completed my Ph.D training at Harvard in Vijay Kuchroo's lab. I am currently focused on understanding the heterogeneity of regulatory T cells during autoimmune inflammation. In addition to my work, I am also passionate about dogs (especially mine), watching cooking programs (but not actually cooking), and anything having to do with the New York Football Giants (don’t get me started).
