Florian Douam, Ph.D. has a Ph.D. in molecular virology from École normale supérieure de Lyon, France. He previously worked as a postdoctoral research associate in the Ploss Lab, in the department of molecular biology at Princeton University. He currently leads the Douam Lab located at the National Emerging Infectious Disease Laboratories (NEIDL), which investigates how the human immune system as a tissue interacts with specific viral pathogens and ultimately regulates different outcome of infection.
