Judy Chen

Immunology Program Graduate Student Candidate


I graduated from Tulane University in 2018 with a double major B.S. in Cellular and Molecular Biology and Chemistry. During my time at Tulane, I was an undergraduate researcher working on characterizing a novel class of antibiotics. I am now at the University of Michigan as a Ph.D. student in the Program in Immunology. During my free time I enjoy painting and trying out new restaurants.

Research Interests

My project in Dr. Goldstein’s lab focuses on how aging causes dysregulation of the immune response to influenza infection.
