Dr. Dan Barouch received his Ph.D. in immunology from Oxford University and his M.D. from Harvard Medical School.  He is currently Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.  He is a key part of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Collaboration for AIDS Vaccine Discovery (CAVD), the NIH Center for HIV/AIDS Vaccine Immunology and Immunogen Discovery (CHAVI-ID), and the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT, and Harvard.


His laboratory focuses on studying the immunology and virology of HIV-1 infection and developing novel vaccine strategies.  His laboratory has explored a series of novel vaccine technologies, including adjuvanted DNA vaccines, poxvirus vectors, and alternative serotype adenovirus vectors in both preclinical and clinical studies.  In particular, he has advanced a series of novel adenovirus vector-based HIV-1 vaccine candidates from concept and design to preclinical testing to phase 1 clinical trials that are currently underway in both the U.S. and sub-Saharan Africa.


Dr. Barouch is board certified in Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases, and he is committed to mentoring students, clinical fellows, research fellows, and junior faculty and to providing clinical care to patients with infectious diseases.
