Justin Frere

MD/PhD Student


Justin is an MD/PhD student who joined the tenOever lab for his graduate studies in 2020. In the lab, Justin is interested in therapeutic development and hopes to use engineered viruses to study systemic viral pathogenesis. Prior to his time at Mount Sinai, Justin pursued bachelors degrees in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Anatomy and Physiology at the University of Arizona. During this time, he was fortunate to be able to explore multiple aspects of immunology and host-pathogen interactions in laboratories at the Mayo Clinic, Mount Sinai, the University of Arizona, and the University of Pierre and Marie Curie.
