Dr. Yarovinsky has more than 20 years of research experience studying immune responses to viral and bacterial infections. Prior to joining CaroGen in 2015, Dr. Yarovinsky conducted independent and collaborative studies as research faculty in the Department of Immunobiology and Yale Cardiovascular Research Center at Yale University School of Medicine investigating host responses to staphylococcal infections and post-transcriptional mechanisms regulating gene expression in immune cells.
His interests in vaccine development stem from his research experience at the University of Iowa, where he studied how adenoviral vectors and respiratory syncytial virus sensitize the host to bacterial toxins. He received his postdoctoral training in molecular biology at the University of Iowa and earned his M.D./Ph.D. in allergy and immunology at Russian State Medical University. His research results are reported in more than 47 peer-reviewed publications.
