Iris Holmes, CIHMID Postdoc Fellow

Iris explores the ways that vertebrate hosts cope with infections from the diverse community of parasites they encounter throughout their lives. Specifically, she looks at signatures of selection on the immune genes of lizards, and correlate those signatures with the lizard’s parasite community. Iris is working in Tory Hendry’s lab.
