Chelsey Spriggs, Ph.D.
I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan Medical School in the Departments of Cell and Developmental Biology and Microbiology and Immunology and a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan's Life Sciences Institute.
Fascinated by host-pathogen interactions, my lab studies how viruses utilize cellular machinery for the completion of their life cycles. I earned my BS in Microbiology from Michigan State University and my PhD in Microbiology and Immunology from Northwestern University.
Not that kind of Dr.
