Dr. Dane Parker joined the Center for Immunity and Inflammation and the Department of Pathology and
Laboratory Medicine in April 2018 as a tenure-track Assistant Professor, where he studies the interaction
between bacterial pathogens and the innate immune system. Dr. Parker obtained his PhD from Monash
University in Melbourne, Australia where his focus on was the genetics and transcriptional regulation of the
pathogen responsible for ovine footrot. In 2007 he moved to the laboratory of Professor Alice Prince at
Columbia University where he gained skills in working with several important human bacterial pathogens
responsible for respiratory and skin infections, also gaining experience with host innate immune signalling
pathways important for the detection of microorganisms. His lab examines how innate immune cells
develop and fight infection, dissecting important host signaling pathways that aid in clearance of infection
as well as elements of bacterial pathogens important for causing disease. Institute. Dr. Parker established
his laboratory in 2016 at Columbia University Medical Center and continues this work at Rutgers New
Jersey Medical School. Work in the lab uses animal models and in vitro analyses to dissect both the host
and bacterial response in infection.
