Mayo Clinic

Michael Barry, PhD, received his Ph.D. from Dartmouth College for work in the early days of apoptosis analyzing how anticancer agents activate this program in Dr. Alan Eastman's laboratory. He then performed a post-doctoral fellowship with Dr. Stephen Johnston working on gene gun, genetic immunization, and adenovirus vector targeting. Dr. Barry was on the faculty for 10 years at Baylor College of Medicine and Rice University and moved in 1996 to Mayo Clinic. His current work involves using genes and viruses as drugs for gene therapy, genetic vaccines, and oncolytic virotherapy. This work involves cell targeting technologies including targeting and detargeting viral vectors, imaging and pharmacologic assessment of virus distribution, and evaluation of humoral and cellular immune responses against viral and vaccine antigens.
