Gwen M. Taylor, PhD
- Research Instructor
Dr. Gwen Taylor joined the Division of Infectious Diseases as research instructor and laboratory manager in the Dermody lab in May 2016. In July 2019 she transitioned from laboratory manager to basic science research. As a senior member of the laboratory, she serves as team lead for reovirus research related to defining the mechanisms of reovirus genome replication, capsid assembly, and progeny particle release.
