Holly Turula, PhD, received her undergraduate degree in biology from Portland State University, Portland, Oregon. She trained in viral immunology both at Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon, and at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, before completing her doctorate in immunology at The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan. For her postdoctoral training, she accepted an Institutional Research and Academic Career Development Award (IRACDA) at the University of Michigan in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology where she focused on education and research in the field of microbiology.
