Angelica Moran, MD, Ph.D.
Clinical Pathology Resident/Postdoctoral Scholar
Angelica received her undergraduate degree in biology and music from Emory University in 2008. During this time, she worked in the lab of Dr. June Scott, studying gene regulation in Streptococcus pyogenes. She then joined the Medical Scientist Training Program at Northwestern University, where she did her PhD research on Pseudomonas aeruginosa T3SS cytotoxins in Dr. Alan Hauser’s lab. She is currently a clinical resident in the Pathology Department Physician-Scientist Track.
Angelica began her postdoc in the Pamer lab July 2021 and is interested in both basic science and translational research that advances precision medicine. Her goals are to use genomic and metabolomic approaches to investigate the underlying mechanisms by which the microbiota influences disease progression and clinical outcomes. She also hopes to develop new clinical tests for identifying patients who may benefit from tailored microbiome-modulating therapies. In her spare time, she plays flute, piccolo and piano with community ensembles and will forever root for Northwestern football.
