Graduate Trainee
Johnson Lab, University of Arizona

Sanjay Menghani grew up in Vineland, New Jersey and received his bachelors from UPenn in biochemistry and economics. As an undergrad, he spent time working in the lab of Dr. Sara Cherry, a renowned virologist and microbiologist. In her lab, he studied Rift Valley fever virus and innate mechanisms of antiviral defense. After spending a year working at the NIH Clinical Center as a Post baccalaureate IRTA Fellow, he moved to Tucson to begin his MD/PhD training at the University of Arizona. After completing his first 2 years of medical school, Menghani officially joined the Johnson Lab and is working towards his PhD in immunobiology. Menghani is interested in understanding infections from both the host cell and pathogen's perspectives. In the Johnson Lab, he will venture to better understand the role of copper and other metals in the infection process, with the end goal to develop therapeutic strategies against bacterial infections that he can bring to the bedside down the road.
