Her work focused on the role of a dietary metabolite, vitamin A, in the regulation of T cell differentiation. For her post-doctoral research, Dr. Brown joined the lab of Alexander Rudensky to pursue studies in the transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of immune cell fate. Her work led to the discovery of novel dendritic cell subsets and their transcriptional regulators, both in mice and humans. Alongside this, she pioneered single-cell transcriptomic studies of pediatric autoimmune disease and human cancer.
