Dennis R. Burton, PhD, Immunology and Microbial Science, The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA

Dennis Burton is a Professor in the Department of Immunology and Microbial Science, The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, USA. He received his B.A. in Chemistry from Oxford University and his Ph.D from Lund University, Sweden in physical biochemistry. He is the Scientific Director of the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) Neutralizing Antibody Consortium and Neutralizing Antibody Center at Scripps and a member of the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard, Boston, USA. He has held many research grants from the NIH and has published more than 250 papers in scientific journals. He has received numerous awards including the Jenner Fellowship of the Lister Institute and a Fellowship in the American Academy of Microbiology.
