Dr. Tubau-Juni is a former PhD student in the NIMML, studying Genomics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology with a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). Dr. Tubau-Juni’s research is focused on the identification of novel regulatory mechanisms underlying infectious and autoimmune diseases with the ultimate goal to develop safer and more effective host-centered therapeutics at the interphase of immunology and metabolism. She has contributed in numerous research projects focused on the discovery of new regulatory candidates and molecular pathways of the host immune response in inflammatory bowel disease, Influenza Virus, Clostridium difficile and Helicobacter pylori. Dr. Tubau-Juni’s expertise encompasses animal models of infectious and autoimmune diseases, in vitro systems, human clinical studies, metabolic assays and data analytics. The findings she has generated contributed in over 15 peer-reviewed publication and book chapters.
