On June 22nd, Philip Ansumana Hull successfully defended his thesis and earned his PhD. His thesis work focused on immune aging, T cell biology, and T cell metabolism. This included identifying a novel evolutionary conserved SIRT1-FoxO1 axis that regulates CD8+ memory T cell metabolism and cytotoxicity. His last day in the Ott Lab was July 31st, and he is now off to work for Bristol-Meyers Squibb.
Congratulations, Ansu, and good luck at your new job!
