Dennis R. Burton, Ph.D.
Professor, Department of Immunology & Microbial Science
The Scripps Research Institute
Dr. Dennis Burton's research focus is on the interplay of antibodies and viruses in humans, and it particular, the highly mutable viruses, human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) and hepatitis C virus (HCV). His lab has developed broadly neutralizing antibodies to these viruses to explore the anti-viral activity of antibodies in vitro and in vivo and to define molecular targets for rational vaccine design.
