Josh Peters is a Ph.D. student in Biological Engineering at MIT, the Ragon Institute, and the Broad Institute advised by Bryan Bryson and Paul Blainey. His work focuses on defining the diversity and determinants of macrophage state within the lung particularly in the context of tuberculosis. He splits his time between the dry and wet lab: analyzing and generating high dimensional single-cell data from both human-derived and murine models. Before arriving in Boston, Josh graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh where he studied chemical engineering. While in Pittsburgh, he gave tours and mixed cocktails at America’s most awarded craft distillery, Wigle Whiskey.
