VARI | 2009 Brian Cao, M.D. Laboratory of Antibody Technology Dr. Cao obtained his M.D. from Peking University Medical Center, People’s Republic of China, in 1986. On receiving a CDC fellowship award, he was a visiting scientist at the National Center for Infectious Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Colorado (1991–1994). He next served as a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard (1994–1995) and at Yale (1995–1996). From 1996 to 1999, Dr. Cao was a Scientist Associate in charge of the Monoclonal Antibody Production Laboratory at the Advanced BioScience Laboratories–Basic Research Program at the National Cancer Institute, Frederick Cancer Research and Development Center, Maryland. Dr. Cao joined VARI as a Special Program Investigator in June 1999 and was promoted to Senior Scientific Investigator in July 2006.
