George D. Smith Professor of Molecular and Genetic Medicine and Professor of Pathology and of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe study natural cellular mechanisms for adapting to genetic change. These include systems activated during normal development and those for detecting and responding to foreign or unwanted genetic activity. Underlying these studies are questions of how a cells can distinguish information as "self" versus "nonself" or "wanted" versus "unwanted".
Associate Professor of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Folkins' interest is in gynecologic and obstetric pathology, specifically in ovarian and endometrial malignancies and placental clinical-pathologic disorders.
Professor of Pathology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur research focus is define correlates of protection against hepatitis C virus and other viral pathogens. Detailed characterization of broadly neutralizing human or nonhuman primate monoclonal antibodies against these agents will create high-resolution, functional maps of linear and nonlinear epitopes comprising the major binding sites of both isolate-specific and broadly neutralizing antibodies for rational vaccine design.
