Research InterestsOur research focuses on understanding how mycobacteria tolerate stress and perturb host cell biology to evade killing by antibiotic treatment and the host immune response. We integrate single-cell measurements and computational modeling to quantitatively describe stress tolerance and virulence mechanisms of mycobacteria.
Short BioBree Aldridge received bachelor's degrees in Computer Engineering and Molecular and Cellular Biology in 2002 from the University of Arizona, Tucson. She went on to receive her Ph.D. in Biological Engineering in 2008 from MIT. She was also the recipient of the U.S. Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship. She completed her graduate studies at MIT under the mentorship of Douglas Lauffenburger and Peter Sorger. Bree joins Tufts after completing a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Immunology and Infectious Diseases at the Harvard School of Public Health under the guidance of Sarah Fortune. Her research focuses on identifying determinants of mycobacterial virulence and tolerance to antibiotic stress.
