Unlike a traditional scientific advisory board, Immugen's advisers have taken an active role in the promotion of the research agenda.
Thomas Hope, PhD
Dr. Hope holds a dual appointment as a Professor in the Feinberg School of Medicine in the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, and Obstetrics and Gynecology at Northwestern University in Chicago. He also holds an appointment as a Professor in Biomedical Engineering in the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. He is internationally known for his work to define the mechanisms of HIV transmission. In fact, he recently collaborated with Preston Marx on research pertaining to SIV transmission. In 2004, Dr. Hope was selected as an Elizabeth Glaser Scientist. Dr. Hope is the Editor-in-Chief of AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses and Section Editor of PLoS Pathogens. He was a co-organizer of several large international HIV conferences including Cold Spring Harbor “Retroviruses” (2007) and Keystone “HIV Pathogenesis” (2010, Sante Fe, NM). Immugen is very fortunate to have his expertise and guidance in moving forward with the research program.
