Dr. Michelle Arnold earned her Ph.D. in virology at Harvard University investigating the formation of reovirus replication complexes. She continued her postdoctoral training in the Laboratory of Infectious Diseases at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, where she primarily studied rotavirus interactions with host proteins responsible for interferon production. Dr. Arnold then became an assistant professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport, where her research program carefully dissected rotavirus evasion of the innate immune response and made unique discoveries on rotavirus-host interactions. She also was actively involved in teaching medical and graduate students, peer-review activities, and academic leadership prior to joining the CSR.
