Pamela Bjorkman, Ph.D.David Baltimore Professor of Biology and Biologica at Caltech
Dr. Bjorkman is the David Baltimore Professor of Biology and Biological Engineering at Caltech. She received a BA in Chemistry from the University of Oregon and a PhD in Biochemistry from Harvard. Dr. Bjorkman’s lab studies the structural basis of the host immune response to HIV-1, SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses. She will discuss how structural studies of antibody recognition of viral fusion proteins can be used to design improved antibody therapeutics and immunogens to elicit broad and potent antibodies for vaccine efforts.
