Dr. Sushil Kumar Sahu received his M.Sc. degree in Life Sciences from Sambalpur University in 2006, and Ph.D. in Life Sciences from Institute of Life Sciences, Utkal University in 2014. He then moved to United States as a Postdoctoral Research fellow to work at University of Pennsylvania (2015-16) with Prof. Erle Robertson and at Johns Hopkins University (2016-19) with Prof. James T. Stivers. Dr. Sahu was a Guest faculty in the Ravenshaw University (2019-20), Cuttack before joining the AIPH University in 2020. He runs a virology lab and has been dedicated to the study of virus-host interactions with a preference to HIV, HCV and human γ-herpesviruses (EBV & KSHV) and SARS-CoV-2 using genetic, genomic, proteomic and biochemical approaches. He has produced over 15 peer-reviewed publications, related book chapters and presented his work in 10+ International conferences. His long-term goal is to develop novel assays for the study of viruses, their reservoir and investigate for the vaccines and drugs against them.
