Research Fellow, Singapore Immunology Network, A*STAR
• Speaker, Emerging Infectious Disease Plenary, 18 Sep 2021
Dr Archita Mishra is a Human Frontier Science Programme (HFSP) Research Fellow at the Singapore Immunology Network, A*STAR . Dr Mishra’s research focus is early-life human immunity and microbiome. She pursued a PhD in Microbiology and Infectious Diseases from the Indian Institute of Science and was awarded the INSA Young Scientist Medal for her doctoral work.
In her pursuit to understand the complexities of human immune-microbial interactions, she moved to A*STAR to work with Prof Florent Ginhoux, and received the HFSP long-term fellowship to carry out her post-doctoral research. Her work demonstrates the role of healthy microbes in priming and conditioning of the human fetal immune system, early in development.
Dr Mishra’s research goal is to delineate the early-life microbiome and immune priming and its implications in long-term disease tolerance like childhood infections and life-long autoimmunity and allergies.
