From his website: Dr. Brian Brown is an immunologist and molecular biologist whose research has a strong focus on biotechnology and therapeutics. His training began with his doctoral studies in Canada and his work to establish ways to overcome the immune response hindering gene therapy. He subsequently did his postdoctoral studies in Italy where he helped develop a new platform for controlling gene expression, which has led to improvements in experimental treatments for genetic disease, cancer, and viral infection. Dr. Brown’s lab is now working to identify the factors that control immunity and tolerance, and translate these findings in to strategies that can be used to turn the immune system against cancer or viruses.
