Beth Chang
Valdivia Lab takes over the bacterial world

Beth Chang

Graduate Student

Beth is originally from Taiwan and earned her B.A. in Molecular and Cell Biology with an emphasis in Immunology and Pathogenesis from UC Berkeley. While at Berkeley, she did research in Dr. David Raulet’s lab studying the cellular and molecular mechanisms of tumor clearance in mouse models mediated by NK cells in response to innate immune stimuli. After graduating, she worked as a staff research associate in Dr. Joel Ernst’s lab at UCSF studying the immune response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb).


Beth is currently a Ph.D. student in the Department of Integrative Immunobiology at Duke, and she interested in understanding the dynamics of host-pathogen immune interaction during Chlamydia infections.


When she’s not in lab, she likes to explore local restaurants and bars, hang out with her dog, watch TV, and sing karaoke!
