Oleg Yegorov, PhD
Dr. Yegorov received his Ph.D. in the microbiology from The Institute of Microbiology and Virology of the Academy of Science in Kiev, Ukraine, 1997. He conducted his post-doctoral training in Germany, U.S.A. and Canada prior to coming to the University of Florida. At University of Montreal he was involved in developing technology for personalizing RNA-loaded dendritic cell immunotherapies for HIV, other infectious diseases, and cancer.
In 2014, Dr. Yegorov joined the University of Florida faculty in order to explore the role of newly-developed tools such as next generation sequencing in the genetic characterization of tumors and immune responses in patients with brain tumors. He expects that approaching immunogenomics as information science, in pursuit of an increasingly comprehensive view of connectivity within the immune system at rest and under challenge, is likely to lead to new and better strategies for immune intervention.
