Tamika John

Research Interest: Microbial pathogenesis.

I was born and raised in Guyana, South America. At the age of six, I emigrated from Guyana to Maryland. I graduated from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) in May 2009. Currently, I am a member of the Tomaras lab, studying the epigenetic regulation of the CD8+ T-cell response to HIV.

When I am not in lab, I enjoy volunteering, reading, good food, spending time with my family, and listening to music.
