Michael Robek has over twenty years of experience in virology and immunology research. After receiving his Ph.D. degree in Molecular Microbiology and Microbial Pathogenesis from Washington University in 2000, he carried out his postdoctoral research at The Scripps Research Institute, where he studied the immune response to hepatitis B virus (HBV). Dr. Robek has a broad background in virology, cytokines, and vaccines. Over the past eight years as a faculty member in the Department of Pathology at Yale University, Dr. Robek’s research has been aimed at understanding how virus-host interactions might be therapeutically manipulated in new ways to control chronic virus infection, with an emphasis on HBV. The discoveries made by his lab have not only provided basic new insight into HBV replication and pathogenesis, but have also identified new potential targets for therapy.
