Robert Carnahan

Vanderbilt University Medical Center

After undergraduate studies, Dr. Carnahan spent several years working for Eli Lilly in Strasbourg, France, before returning to academics as a visiting researcher at the Institut Pasteur. He subsequently returned to the US to complete both Ph.D. and Post-doctoral studies, before establishing and leading a technology lab dedicated to antibody discovery at Vanderbilt for over 10 years. Across this time his passion and focus on innovation led him to create training programs for both students and faculty.  Dr. Carnahan has now brought this focus on innovation applied to the development of antibody therapeutics to the Vanderbilt Vaccine Center.
