Adam Savage, Ph.D.


Adam Savage is a scientist in the Immunology group at the Allen Institute. He completed his post-doctoral training with Dr. Richard Locksley at the University of California-San Francisco, where he focused on diverse aspects of intestinal immunity. These included the functional-anatomic relationship of type 3 innate lymphoid cells and intestinal macrophages, as well as the response of the intestinal epithelial stem cell compartment to injury, infection, and immunity. Savage received a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago for his work elucidating the transcriptional regulation of innate-like T cells with Dr. Albert Bendelac, an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College, and a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is a strong believer in the immune system as an integral partner of healthy tissue as well as a potent mediator of immunity and pathology, and is excited about our potential to positively impact human health and disease.
