Ansuman Satpathy, MD, PhD

Instructor, Stanford University School of Medicine

Dr. Mackay was awarded a 2018 Michelson Prize for “epigenomic mechanisms of vaccine-induced immunity.” Dr. Satpathy is focused on combining disciplines of genomics and human immunology. His research will identify key gene regulatory mechanisms that trigger protective immunity following vaccination using novel epigenomic sequencing technologies applied directly to patient samples. The Prize will allow him to greatly accelerate his work, advancing both 3D and single-cell epigenetic technologies to human immunology and vaccine research.
