Dr. Anjana Ray has a Ph.D. in Plant Pathology from Govind Ballabh Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, India. She worked on cultural and physiological characteristics of Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn and management of the aerial blight of soybean. In the Zang lab, she is investigating new pathways for T cell costimulation and coinhibition and related diseases.
