Lauren Ehrlich, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Texas at Austin. Her lab studies the cellular and molecular interactions between developing thymocytes and surrounding stromal cells in the thymus that promote generation of diverse, self-tolerant, and non-malignant T cells.

To do this, the Ehrlich lab uses a combination of genetic tools, immunological techniques, transcriptional profiling, and 2-photon live-cell microscopy. Two major objectives are to elucidate the contribution of chemokine receptors to central tolerance induction and to determine how cells in the tumor microenvironment support growth of the pediatric malignancy T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
