Steven A. Feldman


Dr. Feldman received his B.A., M.P.H., and Ph.D. from University of California, Berkeley. As a National Reseach Council fellow, he studied mechanisms of viral entry at the FDA's Centers for Biologics Evaluation and Research followed by an addtional NIH fellowhsip investigating the mechanisms of retroviral entry into host cells. Dr. Feldman then spent three years at a leading biotechnology company as the Senior Scientist in charge of process development for the manufacturing of viral vectors and vaccines before coming back to the Surgery Branch of the National Cancer Institute to establish a new Retro/Lentiviral Vector Core Facility.
