Gaya K. Amarasinghe, PhD

Professor of Pathology and Immunology, School of Medicine

Dr. Amarasinghe studies host-pathogen interactions. Many pathogens studied in his lab use biochemical and structural methods that have a high impact on the health systems in Africa and Asia. Through collaborative studies, he is also able to evaluate the impact in model systems, and when possible use data to develop countermeasures.
