The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has appointed Professor Michael R. Farzan and Associate Professor Hyeryun Choe to the faculty on its Florida campus.

Prior to joining Scripps Florida this month, both were on the faculty at Harvard Medical School.

“It is a pleasure to welcome Michael and Hyeryun,” said Peter K. Vogt, executive vice president and chief scientific officer of TSRI. “Both are involved in critical research that will help us advance the diagnosis and treatment of HIV and other devastating viral infections that need to be conquered and defeated.”

“I’m honored to join Scripps Florida,” Farzan said, “I’m genuinely excited by the compound discovery opportunities at Scripps Florida, and hope to develop new opportunities and new directions for my laboratory. I was drawn to Scripps Florida for its new technologies, and for its investigators with different disciplines.”

Choe said, “I’m extremely pleased to become part of Scripps Florida. Over the years, my laboratory has been moving from basic to more translational science, and Scripps Florida has a great reputation in both. I’m looking forward to working with other scientists, particularly medicinal chemists, in developing new therapeutic approaches to viral infection.”
