Congratulations to Russell and Steven

UW MSTP students Russell Berg (E-07) and Steven Levitte (E-10) are co-first authors on a new Cell paper “Lysosomal Disorders Drive Susceptibility to Tuberculosis by Compromising Macrophage Migration”. The paper discusses the increased risk of Tuberculosis in smokers utilizing zebrafish as a genetic screen for determinants. Both Russell and Steven worked in the lab of Dr. Lalita Ramakrishnan. Russell is currently a Med 4 and he will start an Internal Medicine residency at the University of Washington this summer. Steven is in his sixth year in the program and will return to medical school for his clerkships this summer. Congratulations to Russell and Steven!
