JOHN PAK, PH.D.

Senior Scientist, Infectious Disease

John Pak’s group in CZ Biohub’s Infectious Disease initiative is a collaborative team of protein scientists that develops and validates novel protein biochemistry technologies for infectious disease prevention and treatment. His team is focused on understanding viral antigens that are responsible for host-cell attachment, and how antibodies can block those interactions. Pak’s team has a strong interest in developing new methods to express, purify, design and characterize antigens and antibodies at multiple scales. They use a blend of wet-lab and computational approaches to design antigens, and to map immune responses to those antigens. With a focus on viral antigens that are highly relevant to human health, the team’s most recent efforts have centered on the biochemistry and biophysics of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.
