Fascinated by the complexity of the immune system and the various defense mechanism’s in place to fight off pathogens, Sabrina Solouki’s research focuses on a range of topics that integrate immunology and microbiology. As a graduate student in the August laboratory at Cornell, she examines the response of specialized immune cells to the flu virus with the aim of potentiating vaccines.
Sabrina received her B.S in Immunology, Microbiology, and Molecular Genetics with a minor in Political Science from the University of California, Los Angeles. She has always been interested in science policy and healthcare reform and during her undergraduate career had the ability to travel to Nicaragua to study the various medical issues that face the country while also learning first-hand about underdeveloped healthcare systems. She is now pursing her PhD at Cornell University, and intends to use the skills she has gained in her doctoral program to jumpstart a career in science and health policy. Ultimately, her goal is to faciliate politicans’ understanding of the nature of research and basic science to engender more effective local and global health policy and legislation.
