Don Jarvis: Biography

Don Jarvis earned B.S. (1978) and M.S. (1980) degrees in Microbiology at Idaho State University and a Ph.D. (1986) in Virology at Baylor College of Medicine. After a brief postdoctoral training period at Baylor, Don moved to Texas A&M University in 1987 to study glycoprotein biosynthesis and processing in the baculovirus system as a postdoctoral scientist in Max Summers’ group. In 1989, Don took an independent position at Texas A&M and continued to work in the baculovirus system until the end of 1997, when he moved to the Department of Molecular Biology at the University of Wyoming. Don’s research continues to focus on glycoprotein biosynthesis in the baculovirus-insect cell system and his group’s efforts to glycoengineer this system led to the creation of a new biotechnology company, GlycoBac, LLC, designed to commercialize this technology.
