An immunologist, Chatterjea'’s research interests are in cellular and molecular
immunology with a particular focus on the development of immune cells. 

As a graduate student at Stanford, Chatterjea focused on the early development of
precursors of immune T-cells from hematopoietic stem cells. Her desire to broaden her
knowledge of the development and function of other immune cell types led her to Dr. Steve
Galli’s group at Stanford when she worked on molecular and cellular aspects of mass cell
basophil development and function in parasitic and bacterial models of inflammation. 

Chatterjea was a senior associate in immunology research at Genentech, Inc. Her work
involved targeting inflammatory mechanisms in T-cells and other immune cells specifically
in the context of autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple
