Britt is a third year postdoctoral fellow in the Shalek Lab. Her research interests include maternal health, trans-generational health, and lactation. She is currently running the MIT Milk Study, the first longitudinal study to deeply profile milk-resident cells. She was previously a PhD student in Chris Love’s lab in Bioengineering, where she characterized mechanisms of T cell dysfunction and exhaustion in MS and GBM. She received a Bachelor of Engineering degree at Dartmouth College and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biochemistry at Colby College. In addition to research, she enjoys teaching and was a teaching assistant for 5.64, Frontiers of Interdisciplinary Science in Human Health and Disease, this past semester.
