Bryan Briney

SCRIPPS RESEARCH, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR

Dr. Briney is an Associate Professor in the department of Immunology and Microbiology at Scripps Research. He received his PhD from Vanderbilt University under the mentorship of James Crowe and trained as a postdoctoral fellow in Dennis Burton’s laboratory at Scripps. The Briney Lab is focused on large-scale study of the humoral immune response to infection and immunization and maintains active research programs in HIV vaccinology, systems immunology of hemorrhagic fever viruses, computational modeling of antibodies and antibody repertoires, and early B cell development.

Brandon’s research focuses on developing and applying a suite of new high-throughput experimental and computational platforms for molecular analysis of adaptive immune responses. These efforts have been applied to better understand immune responses in the context of viral infections, autoimmunity, and cancer. His research has advanced repertoire-scale single immune cell analysis, protein engineering, and functional T cell analysis, including several discoveries that are being pursued for commercial drug development.
Brandon has been awarded several honors for his research program. His Ph.D. was supported by a Hertz Foundation Graduate Fellowship, an NSF Graduate Fellowship, and a Donald. D. Harrington Graduate Fellowship. In 2016, Brandon was awarded a K99 Pathway to Independence Award and an NIH Early Independence Award. He has also received the Department of Defense Career Development Award, the Biomedical Engineering Society Rising Star Award, and the AIChE Young Faculty Futures award.
Brandon has a strong interest in mentoring undergraduate and graduate students and promoting diversity. He has served as a faculty advisor at the Institute for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) and the Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) program at KU, and at the MIT Summer Research Program to help undergraduate researchers prepare for careers in biomedical research and Ph.D. graduate programs.
