Nora Barrett, MD
Nora is Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and an Associate Physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. She joined the faculty after completing training in Pulmonary Medicine and Allergy Immunology. Her clinical interest is severe asthma. Her research interests are to define the innate immune networks that underpin disease in the respiratory tract.
Yoshi Kanaoka, MD, PhD
Yoshi is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and an Associate Immunologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. His research has focused on studying the role of lipid mediators in general and cysteinyl leukotrienes in inflammatory and immune responses. His current research interest is to examine how the third cysteinyl leukotriene receptor regulates airway epithelial cell functions and type 2 inflammation.
Lora Bankova, MD
Lora is an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School and an Associate Physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. She joined the faculty in Rheumatology Immunology and Allergy in 2013 after training with Lisa Beck at Johns Hopkins and Frank Austen at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Lora is interested in neuroimmunology in the sinonasal mucosa and the function of chemosensory brush cells there.
Dan Dwyer, PhD
Dan is an Instructor at Harvard Medical School and an Associate Immunologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He joined the laboratory in 2014 after completing his PhD in Immunology at Harvard, studying mast cell biology. He is interested in fundamental questions about mast cell origin, function, and regulation in health and disease.
Sachin Samuchiwal, PhD
Sachin is a Research Associate at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He holds a Ph.D. in molecular biology and peptide drug designing from ICGEB. Sachin uses protein fractionation, recombinant expression, and murine model systems to identify ligands expressed in complex native allergens and determine their adjuvant immunologic functions.
Saltanat Ualiyeva, MD, MMSc
Saltanat graduated from Astana Medical University in 2012 and completed her MMSc in Immunology at Harvard Medical School in 2017. She previously studied the role of tissue-resident macrophages in transplant immunity at Terry Strom’s lab at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Her current area of interest is type 2 inflammation in the upper respiratory tract.
Nils Hallen, BSc
Nils joined the lab in 2018 after completing his degree in Molecular Biology at Umeå University, Sweden. He previously worked on expression of virulence-associated gene products in pathogenic enterobacteria. He continues to use molecular biology to probe immunologic questions, but is now focused on the host, defining how mast cells and epithelial cells are activated by environmental exposures.
Fareed Al Haddad
Fareed is an Administrative Assistant at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, having joined the Department of Rheumatology, Allergy and Immunology in 2018. Before that, he worked as an Administrative Officer at a flagship hospital in United Arab Emirates, managed by the Cleveland Clinic. He holds a diploma in Statistics from Damascus University and a Certificate in Administrative Management from the Institute of International Research. Fareed has many years of experience in hospital management and his unique administrative skills are contributing to the lab team success.
