Naeha Subramanian is an Associate Professor at the Institute for Systems Biology and Affiliate Associate Professor in the Department of Immunology and Department of Global Health at the University of Washington. She received her PhD in Immunology from the National Institute of Immunology in New Delhi, India, and completed her postdoctoral training in Dr. Ron Germain’s laboratory at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), National Institutes of Health (NIH). She is the recipient of the G.P. Talwar Medal for Best PhD Thesis (2009), NIAID Merit Award (2011), NIH Director’s Award (2012) and NIAID Performance Award (2014) in recognition of research excellence.
Naeha’s research interests lie in the molecular mechanisms of innate immunity and its role in host defense against pathogens and development of immune disease. The lab also works in the area of human immunology – especially systems-level studies of the immune response in patients with Lyme Disease. Her lab’s main focus is to investigate the function and regulation of a class of intracellular sensors called the NOD-like receptors (NLRs) in health, infectious disease, and complex immune-mediated disorders like cancer and autoimmunity.
