Donna L. Farber, Ph.D.: Brief Bio

Dr. Farber received her undergraduate degree in Microbiology from the University of Michigan, her Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of California, and did postdoctoral training in the Section of Immunobiology at Yale University and at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France. She started her laboratory at the University of Maryland, Baltimore and moved to Columbia University in 2010 where she is currently a Professor of Surgical Sciences and Microbiology and Immunology. Dr. Farber’s research for the past 20 years is focused on immunological memory and recently, on how the immune response is compartmentalized in tissue sites in mouse infection models and in humans. For human studies, Dr. Farber set up a unique resource to obtain multiple tissues from organ donors, enabling novel investigation of human immunity throughout the body over age and genetic diversity.
