The next Distinguished Scientist Seminar at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine will feature Dr. Jonathan Rayner, associate professor of microbiology and immunology and director of the Laboratory of Infectious Diseases at the USA College of Medicine.
The lecture, titled “Drug Development and the Need for Good Laboratory Practice as Defined by the Food and Drug Administration,” will take place Dec. 7, 2017, at 4 p.m. in the first floor auditorium of the Medical Sciences Building on USA's main campus.
Dr. Rayner earned his Ph.D. in microbiology at Colorado State University in 1998 as part of the Arthropod-borne and Infectious Diseases Laboratory where he studied the factors influencing vector-competence for yellow fever virus and dengue viruses. He then completed two post-doctoral research programs with the American Society for Microbiology/National Centers for Infectious Diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of Arthropod-borne Infectious Diseases where he studied the role of non-structural protein mutations on attenuation of dengue virus.
The lecture series is comprised of distinguished scientists from other academic institutions who are invited by the USA College of Medicine basic science departments to present a seminar showcasing their latest research findings. Faculty, staff and students are strongly encouraged to attend.
