Dr. Susan Kaech

July 2, 2024

Dr. Susan Kaech is Professor and Director of the NOMIS Center for Immunobiology and Microbial Pathogenesis at the Salk Institute. She aims to understand how memory T cells are produced during infection and vaccination, how they function and why they can fail to induce long-term immunity, particularly during chronic disease or cancer. Her lab has been a leader in using genetic and molecular tools to identify the genes and signaling molecules involved in generating two specific types of memory T cells, CD4 and CD8, from precursor cells during both acute and chronic viral infections.
