Cybelle Tabilas, Ph.D.
Cybelle Tabilas was born in the Philippines and grew up in Woodland, California. She got her B.A. from Willamette University in Oregon then received a one year NIH fellowship where she studied the signaling pathways that underlie thymus organogenesis.
Cybelle completed her doctoral work in the Rudd lab and her dissertation was titled 'Defining the Roles of Development, Metabolism, and the Environment in the CD8+ T Cell Response to Infection'. Cybelle loved the Rudd lab so much that she decided to stay as a post-doctoral researcher. Here, she is studying immune training of the adaptive immune system.
Though Cybelle is not a fan of the brutal Ithaca winters, she has learned to tolerate them by leaving lab early to cross country ski. When the weather is nice, she likes to run the trails of Ithaca, eat soft serve from Sweet Melissa's, and be in the sun with friends. When she's not worrying about anything, she's stressed out about not being stressed out.
