Sinai-Emory Multi-Institutional CIVIC PI Profile: Rafi Ahmed

We interviewed the Principal Investigators (PIs) responsible for leading each of the CIVICs Centers as part of a two-part interview series. In the first part of each interview, we focused on learning a little bit more about the Center PIs, and in the second part, we asked each PI to introduce us to their Center.

In this article, we interviewed the Co-PI for the Sinai-Emory Multi-Institutional CIVIC (SEM CIVIC), Rafi Ahmed, PhD at Emory University Vaccine Center.
