  • Noah Sather, PhD, is an associate professor at the Center for Global Infectious Disease Research. He joined the center in 2015 to advance its programs in vaccine development for HIV-1 and malaria. Sather received his PhD at Wayne State University in biological sciences, where his thesis work focused on a systems analysis to unravel the secrets of developmental biology. He joined the center as a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Leo Stamatatos, where he worked to understand how anti–HIV-1 antibodies develop.


Research Description

The Sather Lab utilizes state-of-the-art technology to develop novel vaccine immunogens and strategies. In addition, the lab is interested in deciphering the mechanisms of antibody mediated protective immunity by HIV or malaria vaccination. The Sather Lab actively collaborates with scientists from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Oregon Health and Sciences University, the University of Washington and Vanderbilt University.
