BIO

Stylianos Bournazos, Ph.D. is a Research Assistant Professor at the Laboratory of Molecular Genetics and Immunology of the Rockefeller University, New York. He received his doctorate degree in 2010 from the University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom, where he examined the molecular mechanisms of IgG binding to Fcγ receptors and studied the association of genetic variants of FcγRs with interstitial lung disease. Upon completion of the graduate studies, Stylianos moved to the US for postdoctoral training at the Rockefeller University under the mentorship of Dr. Jeffrey V. Ravetch, studying the mechanisms of FcγR-mediated pathways in the protective activity of antibodies against infectious diseases. His research interests are focused on the study of the function of Fcγ receptors and the role of Fc effector activity of antibodies during infection, with particular emphasis on HIV.
