Samuel K Campos, PhD

Associate Professor, Immunobiology
Associate Professor, Molecular and Cellular Biology
Associate Professor, BIO5 Institute
Associate Professor, Cancer Biology-GIDP

Sam earned his Ph.D. from Rice University in 2005, studying the biology of adenoviral gene therapy vectors and vector targeting in the laboratory of Michael Barry now at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. He then trained as a postdoc from 2005-2008 with Michelle Ozbun at the University of New Mexico, focusing on human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Sam came to The University of Arizona in 2008 as an assistant research professor in the BIO5 Institute and joined the Department of Immunobiology as an assistant professor in 2011. Sam was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in Spring 2017.
