Argenia Doss

In 2011, Argenia received her PhD under the supervision of Dr. Peter G. Smith at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, KS. There she studied the relationship between Langerhans cells, an antigen presenting cell, and intraepidermal nerve fibers in rodents under non-diabetic and diabetic conditions. It was this research that propelled her into studying the molecular mechanisms behind neural-immune cell communication. In 2012, Argenia joined Dr. Alejandro Aballay's laboratory as a Post-Doctoral Associate. She is currently determining how the neuronal G protein-coupled receptor, OCTR-1, regulates immune response through chemosensory neurons during pathogenic infection in Caenorhabditis elegans.
