Emily M. Mace

Dr. Emily Mace studies human natural killer cell development, particularly with quantitative image analysis and cell biological approaches. This includes the use of highly spatially and temporally resolved and super-resolution microscopy to understand interactions between NK cell precursors and the microenvironment. She also identifies novel requirements for human NK cell development through the identification and study of rare patients with NK cell deficiencies. This has included the characterization of NK cell functional and cell biological phenotypes associated with MCM10, GATA2, IRF8 and Coronin 1A deficiencies. She is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Columbia University Irving Medical Center in New York. Her work is funded by the National Institutes of Health-National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
