J. Kenneth Wickiser, Administrative Director- Global Alliance for Preventing Pandemics, Columbia University Mailman School Of Public Health

J. Kenneth Wickiser worked for the US government in education and research for over 20 years before joining the Global Alliance for Preventing Pandemics (GAPP) team, a center at Columbia University dedicated to public health technical workforce development and retention, democratization of technologies, and dedication to open data sharing among international partner organizations in the fight to identify and contain emerging pathogens. He earned his PhD from Yale in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry and completed his postdoctoral research work in the Lab of Molecular Neuro-oncology at Rockefeller University before serving as West Point faculty, eventually achieving the rank of Professor of Biochemistry and Associate Dean for Research. The GAPP mission is to provide equitable and sustained access to advanced and economical tools allowing local public health and clinical professionals to keep populations of people and livestock and the supply of food and water safe from pathogens.
