This month, we have the pleasure of welcoming our newest research technician, Thomas Cafiero!
Thomas joins us from Rutgers University, where we obtained a degree in Biological Sciences and conducted research on Lyme Disease – specifically the interaction between host factors and the Borrelia burgdorferi outer membrane.
Having always been interested in human pathogens, Thomas says he was “drawn to the innovative approaches that the Ploss lab uses to study some very globally relevant viruses. Plus I heard it’s one of the coolest labs at Princeton!” (We didn’t even ask him to say that.)We can’t wait to start working with you in person, Thomas!
