Greg conducted his PhD in the laboratory of Dr Nikki Verrills at the University of Newcastle, Australia, investigating the role of protein phosphatase 2A in mast cell degranulation and allergic airways disease. He received his PhD in March 2011 and joined the Streeck lab as a post-doctoral research fellow in May 2011. Greg is currently investigating the epigenetic memory of the CD4-CD8 interaction during acute viral infection.
