Tessa is an SSMF Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Bryceson group investigating NK cell differentiation and plasmacytoid dendritic cell function using cases of primary immunodeficiency.

Om mig

Tessa's interest in natural killer (NK) cells started during an undergraduate research internship at Karolinska Institutet. Upon returning to her home country of Australia she completed her PhD in herpesvirology at the University of Sydney, pioneering the field of varicella zoster virus evasion of NK cell activity. Intrigued by the life-threatening infections from herpesviruses suffered by NK cell deficient patients, she returned to Karolinska Institutet to pursue this line of research in the Bryceson group. Tessa is currently an SSMF Postdoctoral Fellow investigating NK cell differentiation and plasmacytoid dendritic cell (pDC) function in primary immunodeficiency. Her research aims to improve diagnostics of immunodeficiencies and advance our understanding of NK cell and pDC biology to harness their potential in health and disease.
