After receiving her Ph.D. in molecular biology from Princeton University, she went to the NIAID Rocky Mountain Laboratories in Hamilton, Montana, for postdoctoral training and began to study the host-pathogen interactions of the obligate intracellular bacterium, Chlamydia. She continued her studies on the cellular biology of Chlamydia as an NIH staff scientist and then as an NIH-funded associate professor at Cornell’s College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, NY.
