Dr. Kevin Coombs obtained his BA in Biology and English from the State University of New York at Geneseo, and his PhD in Microbiology from the University of Texas at Austin, in 1986. After post-doctoral work at Harvard Medical School, he joined the faculty at the University of Manitoba in 1990. He is currently a Professor of Medical Microbiology, is a Research Scientist with the Manitoba Institute of Child Health, and is Assistant Dean of Research in the Faculty of Medicine.

Research Interest

His research interest mainly lies in Protein and nucleic acid interactions in nucleoprotein complexes, using a variety of model RNA viruses. His lab studies how these interactions change as a result of, and are modulated by, conformational transitions that occur during macromolecular assembly and disassembly, how these processes can be attenuated by anti-viral compounds, and how these processes contribute to pathogenesis in the host.
