Dr. Prevelige's research interests are in the area of structural virology.
His lab uses a variety of genetic and biochemical approaches to characterize
the intersubunit interactions that promote and control the assembly of
Peter E. Prevelige (b. 1956), Professor of Microbiology, completed undergraduate studies in biology at Lehigh University. His graduate studies were done at Brandeis University (Ph.D., Biochemistry, 1985) on histone structure with Dr. G.D. Fasman. His postdoctoral work, on virus capsid assembly, was done at MIT under the direction of Dr. J. King. He held the position of Staff Scientist at Boston Biomedical Research Institute from 1992-1995 and joined the UAB faculty in 1995.
