Teresa Zelante received her Ph.D. degree in 2009 in biology and experimental medicine, Microbiology Section, Department of Experimental Medicine and Biochemical Sciences, University of Perugia, Italy. In 2009, she began her studies in “metabolic regulation of the inflammatory response” as Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Perugia. The research activity mainly aimed to dissect the mechanisms that regulate antifungal immune resistance and T cell tolerance during fungal infection, pursuing the idea that both mechanisms are required to survive infection and for commensalism to occur. She is now pursuing her studies as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Singapore at Singapore Immunology Network (SIgN) focusing on the effective role of dendritic cells in inflammatory disorders.
