Dr. Yount completed her PhD in Immunology at the Ohio State University under Drs. Purnima Dubey and Rajendar Deora where she investigated immune responses to preclinical mucosal vaccines against Bordetella pertussis. She is currently a postdoc in Dr. Toni Darville’s laboratory, where the main goal of her project is to use findings from natural human immunity to Chlamydia trachomatis to inform the design and testing of chlamydia vaccines.
