Vicki is a Senior Scientist at GentiBio. She is an Immunologist by training completing her BS in Biology and Biotechnology at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and PhD at the University of Vermont where she focused on genetic factors that determined NKT cell function. Before Genti, Vicki worked at Genocea Biosciences both as an RA before graduate school on the infectious disease screening team, and after graduate school where she helped investigate the biology and mechanism of action of Inhibigens- neoantigens that seemingly shutdown anti-tumor immune responses. She has always been interested in non-conventional T cells and is excited to help harness Tregs in a beneficial way. Outside of lab, Vicki can be found traversing Cape Cod with her fiancé (who hails from the Cape) or finding another “newly unexplored destination.” Her orange tabby cat, Helix, has yet to be a trusty sidekick in this endeavor but Vicki and her fiancé are working on this pursuit.
