Dr. Alok Mulky serves as the Scientific Review Officer for CSR’s Immunology Fellowships and Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) recurring special emphasis panels.

Dr. Mulky received a M.Sc. in microbiology from the University of Mumbai, India, studying bioremediation, enzymology, antibiotic production, biofilms, and strain improvement. He then received his Ph.D. in microbiology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham studying the molecular mechanisms and structural determinants underlying human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1) reverse transcriptase dimerization. Subsequently, he completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Cancer Institute at Frederick studying intrinsic/innate immune factors and host co-factors involved in the HIV-1 lifecycle. Before joining CSR, he was a faculty member in the Department of Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he continued basic research on host factors involved in viral replication and strategic translational research for identifying small molecule inhibitors of virus-host interactions.
