Biography

Dr. Jeffrey K. Actor has established himself as a productive educator-scientist (tenured, full Professor) with a strong background in immunology and molecular biology with a broad range of expertise in pathobiology. He has shown a commitment to education, at both the Medical School and Graduate School levels. His personal goals include teaching of immune related knowledge and skills to junior faculty, residents, medical students and graduate students, to allow them to achieve a strong understanding of the underlying molecular mechanisms of pathobiology occurring during models of infectious disease. Dr. Actor has held the position of course director for the Medical Immunology course for first year medical students since 2001, and has also served as a co-course director for the Clinical Applications course at the Medical School. He is a facilitator for the Problem Based Learning class for 2nd year students, and he gives lectures, primarily in immune response and pathogen-host interactions, in the Microbiology and Principles in Pathology courses. In addition to over 85 peer-reviewed publications and multiple book chapters on immunopathology, Dr. Actor has authored a textbook entitled: Elsevier’s Integrated Immunology and Microbiology. (Elsevier, Philadelphia, PA), part of a unique integrated series linking basic science courses for medical students in preparation for USMLE Step I.
