Allison Balasko

MD/PhD Student and Vanier Scholar
Department of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases

Education (Current degree, past, training programs): I received my undergraduate degree of Honours in Microbiology at the University of Manitoba and am currently an MD/PhD student in the U of M College of Medicine. Currently a trainee of the International Infectious Disease & Global Health Training Program. Research Project: My project focuses on understanding and reversing immune exhaustion in chronic HIV infection. More specifically, I study immune exhaustion markers, such as LAG-3 and PD-1, on immune cells like T, NK and iNKT cells to understand how these exhaustion markers affect immune cell function in people living chronically with HIV; are these immune cells too exhausted to function normally? Can we reverse this immune exhaustion resulting in a healthier immune response? Awards: Vanier Doctoral Scholarship, CIHR Masters Scholarship, 2019 UM Emerging Leader, 2018 Student Affairs Participation Award. Interests: Basketball (U of M Varsity alumna, Go Bisons!), Biking, Hiking, Boating. Basically, anything outdoors!
