Dr. Brittany Woodby is a postdoc in the lab of Dr. Giuseppe Valacchi, where she is using cell culture techniques to investigate how exposure to pollution can result in the development of inflammatory skin disorders. Woodby obtained her Ph.D. at LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport, LA, working in the HPV lab of Dr. Jason Bodily. His lab is interested in investigating how HPV-encoded proteins alter host gene expression profiles, not only in the infected cell, but also in the surrounding microenvironment, ultimately enabling cancer development and progression.
