Scott Michael is a Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences and has been at Florida Gulf Coast University since 2004. He received his bachelor’s degree in Biology and Chemistry from Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, IA, his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, and conducted postdoctoral work at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Some of his accomplishments include discoveries on HIV protease inhibitor resistance and the origin of HIV-1 from chimpanzees.
His current research interests are directed toward understanding viral evolution and development of anti-virals and vaccines against mosquito-borne viruses. Dr. Michael serves on the editorial board of Virology Journal and is a Course Director for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute SEA-PHAGES program.
