David Ezra Gordon, PhD, is assistant professor and an investigator with the Pathology Advanced Translational Research Unit (PATRU) in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine.

Dr. Gordon is a member of the Discovery and Developmental Therapeutics Research Program at Winship Cancer Institute.


Dr. Gordon received his PhD and MPhil in Clinical Biochemistry from University of Cambridge. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at University of California in San Francisco, California.


The Gordon laboratory utilizes high-throughput experimental genetics and proteomics to build mechanistic models of biological functions and applies this knowledge to invent new therapeutic treatments. We are interested in all aspects of human biology, with a focus on virology and the human immune system as these offer tractable genetic systems, an ample supply of primary tissues, and opportunities to rapidly test therapeutic interventions.

Dr. Gordon has a diverse research background spanning cell and molecular biology, experimental genetics, proteomics, virology, and systems biology.
