Dr. Ralph Baric

Getting READDI for the next pandemic

Dr. Baric is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the University of North Carolina. He earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Zoology from North Carolina State University and a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology from North Carolina State University. He conducted postgraduate research at the University of Southern California School of Medicine in the Department of Microbiology.

The Baric laboratory uses genetic, immunologic, molecular and biochemical approaches to study the molecular mechanisms regulating virus replication, pathogenesis, molecular evolution and cross-species transmission using emerging coronaviruses, flaviviruses (Dengue) and noroviruses as model systems.

They have pioneered new strategies for developing reverse genetic approaches for manipulating the SARS-CoV, SAR-CoV-2 and MERS-CoV genomes and are actively studying the role of multiple genes that function in cross-species transmission, virulence, pathogenesis, viral transcription and RNA fidelity, using novel mouse models of human disease.
