Dr. Schatz is also a professor of immunobiology and of molecular biophysics and biochemistry at Yale School of Medicine.
Generating a Diverse Repertoire of Antigen-Specific Receptors During Development of the Immune System
David Schatz is interested in understanding the early development of the immune system, particularly the processes that assemble and diversify antigen receptor genes, reactions known as V(D)J recombination and somatic hypermutation.
Dr. Schatz is also Professor of Immunobiology and of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale School of Medicine. He received undergraduate degrees in molecular biophysics and biochemistry from Yale University and in philosophy and politics from Oxford University. His Ph.D. degree and postdoctoral training were done with David Baltimore at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research.
