- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Medicine, Nephrology
Miguel Fribourg-Casajuana, PhD, is an engineer and immunologist. His lab focuses on multidisciplinary approaches that combine theoretical and experimental techniques to study cellular signaling in the context of organ transplant immunology with the aim to guide clinical intervention. Dr. Fribourg-Casajuana earned a PhD in Signal Processing from the Polytechnical University in Madrid (UPM), and a PhD in biomedical sciences in a cell-signaling at an electrophysiology lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. He did five years of postdoctoral training in systems biology in the field of immunology, where he honed his skills in experimental techniques and computational analyses in functional genomics and studied the effects of type I interferons in early viral infections. Current research interests in the lab include the study of the role of interferon-beta in transplant and the development of new biosensors to monitor regulatory T cell (Treg) activity and function.
