Minh Pham

Lab Location


Minh received his BS in biochemistry and BA in chemical biology from Brandeis University in 2016, where he also finished his undergraduate thesis in the laboratory of Christopher Miller, PhD. In the following three years, Minh took interests in neuroimmunology and joined the laboratory of Howard Weiner, MD at the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases (ARCND) at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. There, he focused on a project determining the transcriptional gene signatures of various Th17 cell subsets implicated in autoimmune disorders such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.

In 2019, Minh matriculated into Yale's Immunobiology PhD graduate program and subsequently joined the O'Connor Lab in May 2020. His investigative interests are in human translational immunology, particularly in B cells, antibodies, and their associated mechanisms of pathology in autoimmune myasthenia gravis (MG). His research integrates multiple clinical trials in order to answer questions that will inform clinicians, and help improve therapeutic strategies for patients with serious illnesses. 

Outside of the lab, Minh enjoys cooking, fitness, hiking, and attending live music events. Minh is also a freelance wedding photographer and videographer.
