Scott Boyd, MD PhD

Pathologist, Hematopathologist

Bio:   Dr. Boyd is a physician scientist, Associate Professor of Pathology and Endowed Faculty Scholar in Allergy and Immunology at Stanford University. The Boyd laboratory uses high-throughput DNA sequencing and single-cell experiments to analyze human immune responses to infection and vaccination, as well as immunological disorders such as food allergy and immunodeficiency. Many of the laboratory’s projects analyze the responses of B cells and the genetics and functional roles of antibodies in health and disease.

He received bachelor's degrees in Biochemistry at the University of Manitoba, and English Literature at Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He obtained his M.D. from Harvard Medical School and Ph.D. from MIT, followed by pathology residency, hematopathology fellowship, and postdoctoral research work at Stanford University. He is a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, among other honors.

Dr. Boyd has consulted as an expert witness in patent disputes related to antibody technologies and antibody drugs.
