Claude Beltejar 


I received my PhD at the University of Washington, where I used a chemoproteomic approach to study compartmentalized cAMP signaling in T cells. I’m interested in the development and application of mass spectrometry based techniques to study signaling cascades in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. My current efforts in the lab utilize mass spectrometry to identify the substrates of selective kinase inhibitors, as well as the substrates of two novel matrix metalloproteases identified in our lab.

Andrew Frando

Graduate research student

I am a graduate student pursuing a career in infectious disease research aiming to earn a doctoral degree. My research focuses on bacterial pathogenesis, and I am currently in the Grundner Lab studying M. tuberculosis. My project focuses on understanding the relationship between phosphosignaling and its role in M. tuberculosis latency.
