Chulie Ulloa
E.R. Chulie Ulloa graduated from UC San Diego with degrees in Physiology & Neuroscience and Psychology.  She completed a senior thesis in the field of neuroscience investigating the mirror neuron system and its implications in neurocognitive functions.  After college, she spent 2 years in Argentina on Fulbright and NIH-Fogarty Fellowships examining brain areas that could be non-invasively stimulated to enhance motor recovery after brain injury.  She subsequently began her medical training at Stanford University School of Medicine, where she completed an NIH-funded Master of Science in Microbiology and Immunology, and worked with the CDC as a Hubert Global Health Fellow in Kenya.  Her research focused on the mechanisms of protective mucosal immunity induced by autoimmune conditions, infections and vaccines; with a particular focus on identifying tissue-specific, B-cell homing receptors as therapeutic targets.

Chulie completed her residency in Pediatrics at Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School.  She is currently a Pediatric Infectious Diseases Fellow at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania.  As a visiting scholar in the Nizet laboratory for the research component of her training, Chulie’s studies focus  on experimental therapeutics and antibiotic-resistant pathogens.  Her research is funded by the Pediatric Scientist Development Program, Career Development Award, NIH/NICHD K12.
