Alexander Ploss completed his Ph.D. in Immunology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Cornell University and postdoctoral training at the Rockefeller University in New York. Dr. Ploss was a research assistant and research associate professor at the Rockefeller University before joining the faculty of the Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University. Research in the Ploss lab covers three main areas of investigation: Deciphering mechanisms of viral infection/replication, systematically identifying barriers preventing transmission of human viral pathogens to non-primate species, and translating our discoveries into devising experimental systems that will allow us to understand and dissect host responses to these diseases.
