Robert Webb, Ph.D.
Dr. Robert Webb has nearly three decades of collective research and consulting experience in the US military, Federal Civilian Agencies, and academia. Dr. Webb received a Ph.D. in molecular biology from Texas Tech University. He accepted a position at the US Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) in 1998. He supervised research on developing prophylactic and therapeutic interventions against biological select agents, with a specialization in botulinum neurotoxins. During his tenure at USAMRIID, he established a bioproduction facility for the expression, purification and testing of vaccine and therapeutic countermeasures. His work resulted in the development of recombinant proteins currently being used as antigenic surrogates for the generation of antitoxins. Dr. Webb has also been an adjunct faculty member at the Johns Hopkins graduate school for over 18 years. He continues to teach courses in molecular and cell biology and human molecular genetics.
