Tyler Brown

Undergraduate Researcher

Tyler is a rising third-year undergraduate from Charlottesville, VA studying Molecular Engineering. He became interested in wet lab research—and immunology in particular—while pursuing a capstone thesis his senior year of high school, in which he studied the modulation of neutrophil migration in Zebrafish tail injury. Tyler has worked with the Swartz lab since his first year, focusing on T-cell priming by the lymphatic endothelium with PhD candidates Calix Mateos-Salles and Lorenzo Netti. He is broadly interested in cancer immunotherapy research and hopes to eventually pursue a career in industry. Outside of lab, Tyler is a board member on the undergrad-led Society for Molecular Engineering and sings bass in University Chorus.
