Allison Fetz-Palazola, PhD

  • Postdoctoral Research Associate



Allison is a Postdoctoral Fellow who is interested in understanding the involvement of innate immunity and cell death during tissue healing and the resolution of inflammation, including the response to biomaterials and disorders associated with hyperinflammation. As a member of the Nichols Lab, her main focus is to investigate the role of innate immunity in the pathogenesis of a fatal hyperinflammatory disorder called hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). Additionally, Allison is studying anti- and pro-inflammatory cell death mechanisms during the cytokine storm of HLH in order to better understand how cell death contributes to disease severity.
