Dr. Littman is the Kimmel Professor of Molecular Immunology at NYU’s Skirball Institute and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator. Dr. Littman’s laboratory has made multiple contributions toward our understanding of mechanisms that promote immune system development and roles in physiological homeostasis, particularly through interactions with microbiota and with cells of the peripheral and central nervous systems. He received PhD and MD degrees from Washington University in St. Louis and previously was professor of microbiology and immunology at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Littman is a member of the National Academies of Sciences and Medicine and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
