Discovery (Biological & Genetic Mechanisms)

Dr. Jessica Rosin is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Oral Biological and Medical Sciences at the University of British Columbia. Her research program focuses on understanding how distinct populations of phagocytic immune cells (e.g., microglia, macrophages, etc.) signal to nearby cells during embryogenesis to contribute to normal development of the fetus. Her research also aims to understand how exposure to various forms of maternal challenge (e.g., stress, infection, etc.) during pregnancy impacts these phagocytic immune cells and alters normal developmental programs.


Area of Research Expertise
Development; microglia; hypothalamus; maternal environment; sexual dimorphism
