Irina Miralda Molina, PhD
Originally from Honduras, I earned my PhD in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Louisville in April 2020. Now, I am a part of Seattle Children's Research Institute as a Postdoctoral Fellow and ready to use my platform to mentor and encourage others to pursue a career in STEM. My research passions lie in studying host-pathogen interactions in the context of innate immunity, specifically from the point of view of neutrophils and mast cells. In my spare time, I enjoy baking and spending time with my Australian shepherd Tula and my collection of 100+ plants and succulents.
