Dr. Schramm earned his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in 2012 and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Columbia University prior to joining the VRC as a staff scientist in 2016. Dr. Schramm has been a pioneer in the longitudinal phylogenetic analysis of B cell clonal lineages and developed the SONAR analysis suite to facilitate those studies. He also has significant research interests in IG V gene substitution profiles and immunogenetics. As chief of the IBIS Core, Dr. Schramm designs and leads large-scale scRNASeq analyses of innate and adaptive immune cells dynamics in infection and vaccination. Beyond the VRC, Dr. Schramm is a founding member of the AIRR Community organization and serves as co-chair of the Software Working Group.
