Brandon Lee, MD/PhD


Dr. Brandon Lee completed his MD and PhD in Immunology at the University of Chicago. He conducted his research with Dr. Juliane Bubeck Wardenburg and showed that Staphylococcus aureus hemolysin-alpha expression suppressed the formation of T cell memory and cytokine production during skin infection, impeding the development of protective, adaptive immunity to S. aureus infection. His research interests are focused on host-microbe communication and interactions; specifically, how microbes may interpret and adapt to signaling by the host immune response.
