Catarina Sacristán, Ph.D is an immunologist and the Editor of Trends in Molecular Medicine. A graduate of Wellesley College in Massachusetts, she completed her MSc research in autoimmunity at the U.N.A.M. in Mexico. She then received her Ph.D. from Tufts University School of Medicine, where she studied B lymphocyte molecular immunology in the laboratory of Ananda Roy. Focusing on T lymphocyte gene expression and signaling, she conducted postdoctoral research at the U.N.A.M., Mexico, in the laboratory of Yvonne Rosenstein. She subsequently performed cardiovascular and immunological research at the biomedical engineering firm Innovamedica/Abdeo in Mexico City. Another post-doctoral fellowship with Michael Dustin at New York University School of Medicine led her to a collaborate with the laboratory of Rafi Ahmed at the Emory Vaccine Center, working on T cell differentiation and exhaustion, gene expression, signaling and imaging of the immune system during chronic viral infections.
