Brooke Napier is a Post doctoral fellow in Denise Monack's Lab at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. She received her Ph.D. from Emory University in the Microbiology & Molecular Genetics program in David Weiss's Lab, and has a BA in Neuroscience from Agnes Scott College (Decatur, GA). She spends her days uncovering the secrets of host and pathogen interactions.
Although she hangs out with human pathogens all day, her interests spread from microbes in the human body to microbes found at the ends of the universe. On her off time you can find her traveling the globe, running & biking around the city, trying to eat at every restaurant in the Bay Area, or downloading pictures of small animals while snuggling her 3-legged dog.
