Prior to coming to the University of Minnesota, Dr. Williams received an MS in Pathology in 2005, an MD in 2011, and completed Pediatrics residency in 2014, all at the University of Iowa. Dr. Williams completed a fellowship in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant in 2017 here at the University of Minnesota. During her fellowship, she completed post-doctoral research with Dr. Michael Verneris where she worked on characterizing the presence T cell exhaustion in the peripheral blood of AML patients undergoing haploidentical NK cell adoptive therapy and in the bone marrow of patients with relapsed/refractory leukemia undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplant.

Her current project is focused on investigating transcriptional regulators of T cell differentiation that can be manipulated in induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to produce longer acting and more potent cytotoxic T cells for cellular therapy.
