David Artis, Ph.D.

Director, Jill Roberts Institute for Research in Inflammatory Bowel Disease 

Michael Kors Professor of Immunology, Department of Medicine

Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, Department of Microbiology and Immunology

Dr. Artis completed his doctoral research training at the University of Manchester, UK focusing on regulation of immunity and inflammation in the intestine. Following receipt of a Wellcome Trust Prize Traveling Fellowship, he undertook his post-doctoral fellowship training at the University of Pennsylvania where he continued his research training in examining the regulation of immune responses at barrier surfaces. Dr. Artis joined the faculty at Penn in 2005 and became a Professor of Microbiology in 2014.

Dr. Artis moved to Cornell University and became the Michael Kors Professor of Immunology and Director of the Jill Roberts Institute for IBD Research at Weill Cornell Medicine, Cornell University in New York City in 2014.  Dr. Artis has developed a research program focused on dissecting the pathways that regulate innate and adaptive immune cell function at barrier surfaces in the context of health and disease.  His research program also encompasses a significant effort to translate research findings in pre-clinical models into patient-based studies of immune-mediated diseases. Dr. Artis is funded by NIH, CCFA and BWF and has been the recipient of Young Investigator Awards from AAI, CCFA and ICIS, the Colyton Prize, the Stanley Cohen Prize and the AAI-BD Biosciences Investigator Award.
