Director of Rapid Response, Infectious Disease Initiative

Tato received a Ph.D. in immunology from the University of Pennsylvania, where she studied transcription factor families and their downstream signaling pathways. As a postdoctoral fellow (NIH and Schering-Plough Biopharma), she continued using in vivo models of infection and autoimmune inflammation to gain insight into how these transcription factors mediate host resistance to infection, regulate the production of inflammatory cytokines, and affect the development of innate and adaptive immunity. At Stanford’s Institute for Immunity, Transplantation and Infection, Tato focused on the tactical application of systems immunology methods for studying human health and disease and for evaluating vaccine efficacy. She joined the Infectious Disease Initiative’s Rapid Response Team at CZ Biohub to plan and implement activities to strengthen global emergency response efforts to epidemics.
