Dr. Roland Strong is a biophysicist who uses protein engineering and structural biology — capturing the 3D shapes of proteins at their atomic level — to better understand the microscopic players that make up our immune systems. He works to both advance our basic knowledge of immunity and engineer proteins that could form the basis of new therapies or vaccines for cancer, HIV and other diseases.
