3rd year graduate student
Cybelle Tabilas grew up in Woodland, CA and was born in the Philippines. She got her B.A. from Willamette University then received a one year NIH fellowship where she studied the signaling pathways that underlie thymus organogenesis in the Manley lab.
Her thesis focuses on the life history of the CD8+ T cell compartment. She is particularly interested in CD8+ survival and the environmental factors that impact how the CD8+ T cell compartment is put together.
In the winter, Cybelle likes to cross country ski and when the weather is nice, she likes to run the trails of Ithaca and hang out at Sweet Melissa's. When she's not worrying about anything, she's stressed out about not being stressed out.
