What's an "Ian York", and where can I get one?
Now with bullet points!
The short version of my CV goes something like this:
I graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1985, practiced veterinary medicine for a few years, and then went back to school. I got an M.Sc. from OVC in 1990 and a Ph.D. from McMaster University in 1994.
My PhD work on the herpesvirus immune evasion gene ICP47 led to three papers (Cell, 1994; Nature, 1995; EMBO J, 1996) that have (as of winter 2008) collectively been cited over 1000 times.
In 1994 I became a Research Fellow at Harvard University at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, with Ken Rock. In 1997 we moved to the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre, where I was first a Post-Doctoral Fellow, then an Instructor (2001) and ultimately a Research Assistant Professor (2003).
In 2006, I moved to Michigan State University, as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, working on autoimmunity and viral immune evasion, as they affect and are affected by the class I major histocompatibility complex.
In 2010, I joined the CDC, moving to Atlanta in the process.
These pages (originally written in 1995, when I was first curious about HTML) eventually got too outdated even for me to ignore, but rather than actually do anything about it I'm just taking most of them down.
To more finely accentuate the uselessness of this page, I have added CSS, CGI, and PHP. These pages are not optimized for any browser. If they are unreadable on your machine, that is a benefit, not a disadvantage.
These pages don't reflect anyone's opinion except my own, and even then I reserve the right to deny it.
