Postdoc Sarah Budischak

Sarah is a physiological ecologist who doesn’t mind doing the often dirty work of studying helminth infection in hosts ranging from tadpoles to buffalo to mice. She brings together ideas from immunology, parasitology, and community ecology to better understand how hosts, multiple parasites, and nutrition interact to influence host health and disease dynamics. She has just moved on to a faculty position at the Claremont-McKenna colleges.
