Steven Erb (cont.)

At the CDC his work focused on the avian influenza outbreak that occurred in 2004 (and is still continuing). Two publications will result from these efforts. Steve then moved from Atlanta to Philadelphia last October and conducted molecular research on HCV and West Nile Virus pathogenesis on the cellular level at Fox Chase Cancer Center through this summer. In June, Steve started his first rotation in Dr. Blair's lab at the AIDL. He plans to focus his PhD training on virology and would like to research emerging viral pathogens for the rest of his career.

While in Colorado, Steve is looking forward to learning how to climb, exploring a few of the sights in the West, and in general just partaking in many other outdoor activities (opportunities for which are far more limited on the East Coast).
