Mary Lewinski, MD, PhD

Mary Lewinski

Dr. Mary Lewinski earned her M.D. and Ph.D. as part of the MSTP at UC-San Diego. For her Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences she studied retroviral integration at the Salk Institute with Frederic Bushman, Ph.D. Prior to this, she graduated from the University of Southern California in 2000 with a B.A. in Philosophy and a B.A. in Political Science. She is currently an Infectious Diseases fellow working with John Guatelli, M.D. at the UCSD Center for AIDS Research.
